I am fully aware that the 1st birthday party is for the parents and not so much for the child. Obviously the attention is on the child, but the celebration is the parents’. We’ve made it an entire year and everyone is still in one piece. Personally, I think all birthday parties must come with cake. I am learning that I like to do cupcakes instead of a cake since they are faster to ice and serving sizes are equal. Also, small children feel they have hit the jackpot when given their own cupcake.
This cupcake recipe has the ability to be flavored however you’d like. Because it’s a basic white cake, you can experiment with the tea you use to infuse the milk. I chose a brightly flavored tea, but you could use Earl Grey or Green tea or whatever your heart desires!
Tea infused cupcakes
- 7 oz. whole milk
- 1 cup raw sugar
- 2 cups All Purpose flour
- 1 level Tbsp. Baking Powder
- 3 large eggs
- 4 Teabags (I used a Pomegranate Green Tea for this recipe)
