Chai Tea Cupcakes Recipe

What better way to eat sweet desserts than guilt-free? Since tea is an ingredient that offers many health benefits, using tea in any dessert recipe is a great way to feel good about these guilty pleasures! This recipe is designed to make 12 servings.

Step One:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin tin with paper (or silicone) liners.

Step Two:
Heat 1 cup of milk in a saucepan until almost boiling, then remove from heat and add 2 black tea bags and 2 chai tea bags. Cover and let stand for about 10 minutes, then wring out the tea bags into the milk and discard the tea bags.

Step Three:
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the tea-milk with ½ cup plain yogurt, ¾ cup sugar, ½ cup canola oil, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Step Four:
In a separate mixing bowl, combine 1 cup all purpose flour with ¼ teaspoon baking soda, ½ teaspoon baking powder, 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, ½ teaspoon ground ginger, ¼ teaspoon ground cloves, and a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper.

Step Five:
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until well blended. Spoon into muffin cups (about half full) and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes. Allow to cool before frosting and serving.
