Earl Grey Cupcakes

lemon earl grey cakes

I had the urge for some cakes at the weekend, something not too sweet and a little bit different. I used to hate Earl Grey Tea. I remember once as a child visiting family friends, and they gave me a cup of it and I thought it was the most disgusting thing ever! Fast forward a few years, and it’s my favourite kind of tea now. Earl Grey goes perfectly with the lemon in these cupcakes, and I used coconut sugar in place of refined sugar. Papa didn’t like the idea of Earl Grey Cupcakes at all, but I thought they were delicious!
