Milk Tea Muffins


What happens is, when you're a coffee person but your Mr isn't, you compromise. So I started drinking milk tea with coffee. Guess what, it's addictive. 
Of course, I had to make milk tea goodies. For this, you would need Instant Milk Tea Sachets. Your favorite brand. 
Recipe from Epicurious adapted for the milk tea version.

For the white frosting, just combine icing sugar with enough milk for desired consistency.
These muffins are lovely. See that red'ish color? That's milk tea for you. 
And (drumroll...) Its healthy! (For me anyways).
Lastly, look at these pins below.
I don't know about you, but I need these! They arrived in my mail two days ago, thank you so much Mrs Ferguson and her handicraft work. Can't wait to use them! As a matter of fact, I may have annoyed people so I can show these babies off.

Thank you!
Jes

  2. I love coffee, tea, and milk tea is something I enjoy too. My husband finds coffee too much caffeine for him so we enjoy milk tea afternoons when we are together...This is a real treat! Thanks for the recipe Jes!

    1. @ Beth: please do. One of the best things about this recipe from epicurious is pre-soaking the oatmeals. As they bake, they blend and turn the muffin into this pudding'y crumbly texture :D

  5. I don't drink coffee much, and when I do I usually add some milk to it.
    I like my black tea with milk but I don't think I've seen milk tea sachets. Hmmm I have to check the tea and spice store in the area.
    Your muffins would be great at breakfast time

    1. @ Roxana: I realised not many actually know what milk tea was. Will find a few sachets :D (you will be able to find them more in the big groceries)

  10. These muffins look lovely - and would suit me perfectly as I´m as much as a tea as a coffee person! But I´m definetely a muffin person, anyways! Goodies come first, coffee or tea secondly! ;) I don´t think I can get my hands on milk tea around here, though...

    1. Yes. Very much so. I do feel that mixing the milk tea sachets in hot water before adding them to the rest of the ingredients would bring out that milk tea fragrance we all desire.
