Today the rain is pouring down. It has been pouring down since last night and will probably rain on and off all day and drizzle into tomorrow morning.
This can only mean one thing:
Its time to bake!
3/4 cups of castor sugar
125g soft butter
1 cup of rooibos tea made with 3 tea bags
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
Cream sugar and butter, beat in eggs one at a time. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix till smooth. Half fill cupcake cases with the batter and bake in a preheated oven at 180 deg for about 15 mins or till a knife comes out clean. Cool and ice with vanilla or lemon icing.
Give some to a friend and make their day,
Share some with your mom
Or just curl up by the fire with a cup of tea and a few of these – take some time out for a bit of cupcake meditation 😀
