Peach Tea Cupcakes

peach tea cupcakes

Remember when I learned the best way to bake with tea?  I made jasmine raspberry cupcakes that I adored, and I warned you that more tea cupcakes were coming soon.  When the folks at Paula Deen requested a peach cupcake for the month of August, sweet peach tea immediately came to mind.  Can’t you picture Paula Deen sitting on her porch with one of my peach tea cupcakes?  Some day, I’ll get the chance to personally make one for her; but for now, I’ll just continue to widely grin about the fact that my cupcakes are on her website.

Here’s the peach tea cupcake recipe.
