I wanted to make one of those super-trendy tea cupcakes - but I wanted to do it my way!  I like Constant Comment Tea - a black tea flavored with orange and cloves, so that was my starting point

Step 1: Make the Cupcakes

1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease teacups with butter. 
2)  In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup of milk until almost boiling.   Remove from heat, add 2 black tea bags and 2 Constant Comment tea bags.  Cover and let stand for about 10 minutes.  Wring out the tea bags into the milk and then discard the tea bags.
3) In a mixing bowl, whisk together the tea-milk, 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup canola oil, and 1 tsp. vanilla extract.
4) In a separate mixing bowl, combine 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground cloves, pinch of salt and some orange zest.
5) Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until well-blended.  Pour into prepared tea cups to half-way.  Bake for 25-30 minutes.  Yields 6 tea cups (each tea cup is two servings).

<p>No attempt is made to upsell. You got to assume that the customer will <br>naturally want this. Begin the upsell with a brief benefit, then if possible, <br>add something unique about what you selling. To avoid sounding pushy, <br>particularly if the upsell requires <strong>maglia juventus <br>personalizzata</strong> some elaboration, ask for the customer permission to <br>describe it.</p><p><a href="http://www.magliedicalcio.com" rel="nofollow">http://www.magliedicalcio.com</a></p>
The recipe I started with did use that much oil, but I think you could get away with a lot less oil. Let us know how they turn out. <br>
I'm definitely gonna have a go at these, I might make some coffee mug cakes for the coffee drinkers while I'm at it. I would like to ask though, is that much oil really necessary? I don't really bake much, but it just seems like quite a bit.
I really like tea, but I'll have my wife bake these in a more manly cup..You get my vote!
thanks! A mugcake instead of a cupcake!
