Arnold Palmer Cupcakes

This post is courtesy of my nieces, Maddie (12) and Nina (11). My little girls are growing up fast…TOO fast! But, if they keep baking like this, I won’t complain about it 🙂

These were delicious! And adorable.

Arnold Palmer Cupcakes
from Food Network

1 cup milk
5 black tea bags
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 1/2 cups AP flour
3/4 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt

for the frosting:
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups confectioners’ sugar, divided
1/2 cup reserved milk/tea mixture
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two muffin pans with paper liners.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat milk until hot to the touch. Place tea bags in hot milk, and let steep for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove and discard tea bags. Let milk cool.

In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar at medium speed until creamy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add 1/2 cup milk and tea mixture, lemon zest and lemon juice. Mix well.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add dry mix into the wet ingredients.

Spoon batter evenly into prepared muffin cups. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pans and cool completely on wire racks. Spread frosting evenly over cupcakes.

To make the frosting: beat butter at medium speed until creamy. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar alternating with tea/milk mixture slowly. Beat in lemon juice until creamy.
