  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Preheat Oven to 400 Degrees Fahrenheit. Add 4 Cups of Flour to a large bowl.

    Step 2

    Add 2 Cups of Granulated Sugar and 1 Tablespoon, 2 Teaspoons of Baking Powder to Flour mixture.

    Step 3

    Add 1 Teaspoon of Salt and stir mixture to combine. Set Aside.

    Step 4

    Add 9 Tablespoons of butter to medium size pot. Heat on low until all butter is melted. (I was clearly too impatient for this step)

    Step 5

    Add 12 Teaspoons of Loose Leaf Davids Tea Birthday Cake tea.

    Step 6

    Heat on Low for 5-10 minutes or until butter is noticeably tinted in color from the tea.

    Step 7

    Pour Tea & Butter mixture into a glass using a fine sieve. (I used a metal coffee filter in lieu of a sieve; I think you could also use a paper coffee filter)

    Step 8

    Press hard on the tea leaves using a small spatula to remove butter from leaves. Set melted tea butter aside.

    Step 9

    In Medium bowl, add 2 Large Eggs.

    Step 10

    Add 2 Cups of Milk to Egg mixture.

    Step 11

    Whisk Eggs and Milk together.

    Step 12

    Pour in tea butter mixture.

    Step 13

    Whisk to combine.

    Step 14

    Pour wet mixture into the dry ingredients.

    Step 15

    Stir to combine using a large spatula.

    Step 16

    Mixture should look similar to this.

    Step 17

    Spoon mixture into lined muffin pans and bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.

    Step 18

    Let muffins cool and enjoy!
