I am in love with this blog by Miss Igs. There are so many gorgeous photos, delicious recipes and written really well. Make sure you have a look!
Recently she posted this wonderful recipe using our Earl Grey teabags. Here it is…
Ever since Tim designed some packaging for The Tea Shed we have been receiving special little packages every once in a while with lots of special treats. This time round we got a box of our favourite Mr Grey’s Tea, a gorgeous tea towel and some samples of some absolutely stunning chai. If you haven’t tried any of the Tea Shed teas I thoroughly recommend you get sampling. The bags are filled with full leaves rather than dust so the flavour is tenfold better then your normal tea. They is a huge variety of teas from your’Pick me up at 3′ tea which has a little more caffine to help perk you up towards the end of your day to your ‘Northern Brew’ which is designed for places with hard water. There even is a ‘Out of Milk Tea’ which has a naturally milky taste which is perfect for those mornings when a run to the shop for milk just isn’t an option. Perfect for students but also for anyone as forgetful as me! Go check out the Tea Shed shop, you won’t be disappointed.
I don’t have the madeline baking trays so I used some metal cases, I imagine that you can buy them in most kitchen shops.
Recipe from Daily Delicious
You will need-
- 170g unsalted butter
- 150g cake flour – I didn’t have any so I took a tbsp of flour out and replaced it with a tbsp of cornflour and sifted it 5 times
- 4g baking powder
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 2 medium eggs at room temperature
- 120g icing sugar
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2tbsp early grey tea
Next combine all your dry ingredients and also set to 1 side.
Place a bowl over a pan of simmering water and add your eggs. Whisk until it has tripled in size and you get long ribbons when you pull the whisk out. Next add the honey and mix until incorporated.
Remove the bowl from the heat and then slowly whisk the dry ingredients in bit by bit and then repeat with the melted butter till everything is combined. Be careful not to overmix. Cover the bowl and leave to rest in the fridge for atleast an hour or overnight.
