Welcome Autumn with Chai Honey Cupcakes.

Say heeelllooooooo to fall with these wonderfully spicy cupcakes.... this is my favorite recipe on the planet! They are perfect breakfast treats and also work with coffee on a chilly evening with colorful leaves blowing off trees in the background...maybe with the fireplace going as well!


3 chai-spice tea bags
1/2 cup of boiling water
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
 1/4 cup of honey
4tbsp butter, melted
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 large egg


preheat at 350
steep the tea bags in the boiling water for 5 min, discard bags, let cool

whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt
in a large bowl combine the honey, melted butter, buttermilk and egg
add the dry ingredients using an electric beater
add the cooled tea and beat until just combined

bake in muffin tins (makes about a dozen)

add a drop of honey to homemade vanilla frosting and swirl into small circles

Enjoy....feel free to double or triple the recipe :-)
