Just Desserts: Lemon Sweet Tea Cupcakes
This Lemon Sweet Tea Cupcakes recipe post is in partnership with Tradewinds Tea via the Mom it Forward Influencer Network.
There’s nothing like kicking back and enjoying a peaceful day at home with your loved ones.
With the busyness of everything, unplugging and taking some time out to enjoy life is just what the doctor ordered. Some of the best memories I’ve made recently have been ones that I have with my family in our home and off the grid.
Add some yummy inspiration to it, and you’ve got it made!
Summer may be coming to an end soon, but you can still find a way to bask in it with our Lemon Sweet Tea Cupcakes. Oh so sweet yet with a hint of sour savory, you’ve got a treat that the whole family will love.
The inspiration for this recipe came while I was drinking Tradewinds Slow-Brewed Tea while creating this post. I thought it would be fun to add the sweet flavor to a cake batter to take it up a notch.
After a couple of revisions, my Lemon Sweet Tea Cupcakes made with Tradewinds Slow-Brewed Tea were born!
The addition of the lemon tea adds moistness with a kick of sour. It also makes the cake batter creamier for decadent cupcakes.
These cupcakes are super simple to make. Here’s what you will need:
- 1 cup Tradewinds Slow-Brewed Half Tea Half Lemonade
Preheat your oven to 350, then mix the ingredients together with a stand mixer or in a bowl. You will have enough batter for 24 cupcakes.
Line the muffin tins with cupcake liners and then add a scoop of batter to each liner. Cook the cupcakes for about 20 minutes, test with a toothpick to see if it’s done.
To save some time, you can use a box mix and add Tradewinds Slow-Brewed Tea Half Tea Half Lemonade to it—the same amount shown in the recipe will do.
Top the cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting and add fresh lemon wedges to it for a little fun. You can even add straws for a whimsical effect.
Allow yourself to relax, unwind, and enjoy life at a slower pace. You deserve those #momentstosavor.
