Today’s Mrs Agra inspired recipe of Chai tea muffins is brought to us by nosolocomida

I’m crazy about teas and I drink 2 or 3 cups a day, I love how it makes me feel, it gives me energy and they also relax me as well. When I was challenged to make a recipe with one of Tea and the gang’s teas I was super excited and I thought these Mrs Agra chai muffins would make the perfect comfort food, as we head towards the cold months. I hope you enjoy!

INGREDIENTS: 

  • Brew 80g of chai tea from “The Tea and The Gang” (1 bag + 80g of water)
  • 90g of panela
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 55g wheat flour
  • 50g whole flour
  • 75g of butter
  • 5-6g of royal yeast (chemical booster)
  • Brown sugar to decorate
  • Baking mold for making muffins
  • 24 disposable muffin papers

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. We prepare the tea by boiling water and infusing a tea bag in 80 grams of water at 90-100 degrees centigrade for 5 minutes.
  2. Melt the butter in the microwave and let it temper.
  3. Beat the eggs and sugar for several minutes to add air to the mixture and, so we can have a fluffy muffins.
  4. Add the tea and butter to the egg and sugar mixture and beat until everything is well incorporated.
  5. Add the flours and the yeast and beat until there is a complete mixture.
  6. With the help of a spoon we fill the disposable muffin papers placed on the oven proof molds and incorporate the same amount on all. Approximately you have to fill up to 2/3 of the capacity of the mold because then it will grow and you do not want it to overflow. I use two papers per cupcake to make it look more beautiful, since the one that is in contact with the dough is wet.
  7. You can then bake in a preheated fan oven at 180ºC for 18-20 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. The cooking time will depend on the size of the muffins.
  8. Enjoy with a lovely cup of tea 🙂
