It’s Mother’s Day this weekend and you have no idea what to make mom! We have a quick and beautiful dessert that we are sure mom will love. These luxurious cupcakes are beautiful and taste exquisite too.
For super moist cupcakes, here are the instructions.
1/2 cup whole milk (2% or soy milk works too)
1 Teasia Earl Grey K-Cups, brewed
2 tbsp dried lavender (you can easily order these online)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
¾ cup unsalted butter (1.5 sticks)
2 cups granulated sugar (cut it to 1 cup if you don’t want your cupcakes to be extremely sweet)
6 large eggs, room temperature
1 tbsp vanilla extract
½ cup water
1 Teasia Earl Grey K-Cup, brewed
1 tbsp dried lavender
3 cups granulated sugar
8 egg whites, room temperature
½ tsp cream of tartar
2.25 cups unsalted butter (4.5 sticks)
- Brew Teasia Earl Grey k-cup and add dried lavender. Warm up milk and add to mixture and cover so that lavender starts infusing for 12-15 minutes, until the milk tea mixture is a caramel color and very fragrant. Pour the milk tea mixture through a wire strainer into a measuring cup, to remove lavender. You should have 1 cup of mixture. Discard extra.
- Preheat the oven to 350 F, and line cupcake tins with paper liners. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt, and set aside.
- Combine the butter and granulated sugar in the bowl of a large using a hand mixer or stand mixer. Beat them on medium-high speed for about 5 minutes, until very light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla and mix well.
- With the mixer on low speed, add a third of the flour mixture, and once it is incorporated, add half of the milk tea mixture. When that’s mixed in, add half of the remaining flour, then add the rest of the milk tea, and finish by adding the last of the flour. Clean the sides of your bowl with a rubber spatula to get everything incorporated.
- Scoop the batter into the prepared cupcake tins, filling them about 3/4 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes, rotating halfway through, until the tops are golden brown and is clean when you pierce with a toothpick.
- PRO TIP: Cool completely on a wire rack before frosting them.
TO MAKE THE FROSTING:
- Brew Teasia Earl Grey k-cup and add dried lavender. Warm up milk and add to mixture and cover so that lavender starts infusing for 15 minutes, until the milk tea mixture is a caramel color and very fragrant. Pour the milk tea mixture through a wire strainer into a measuring cup, to remove lavender.
- Add the granulated sugar to the milk tea and stir. Place the pan over medium-high heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Insert a candy thermometer and cook until it reaches 245 F. Note: Keep an eye out for the sugar syrup to reach the temperature as you don’t want it to burn.
- Place the room temperature egg whites in a bowl and use hand mixer or stand mixer to whisk. On medium speed beat egg whites until the whites look foamy. Stop the mixer briefly and add the cream of tartar. Turn the mixer back on and begin to whip on medium-high speed until the whites are stiff but not crumbly. You can turn the mixer off if the egg whites are finished before the syrup is ready.
- When the whites are stiff and the sugar syrup has reached 245 degrees, turn the mixer back on to medium-high and pour the syrup into a cup. Slowly and carefully incorporate the hot sugar syrup down the sides of the bowl into the egg whites while the mixer is running. The whites will rise in volume.
- Once the syrup has been added you will get a shiny and voluminous whipped frosting. Make sure to keep the mixer at low-medium speed and keep whipping until the bowl goes to room temperature, which could take 10 to 20 minutes.
- Cool egg mixture and start adding butter. I recommend adding it slice by slice so that everything is evenly incorporated. If your mixture looks soupy or broken, continue to whip the frosting until it comes back together. Eventually you will have a smooth, satiny frosting. Add the vanilla and salt, and mix until it’s well incorporated.
- Now it’s time to decorate & enjoy!
Day 13 and I am trying a wonderful cup of Teasia single origin coffee from Central America: Guatemala Antiqua. One thing I love about all these single origin coffee beans is that drinking a cup of coffee takes me a trip around the world. I am able to enjoy different types of coffee, sitting right at home.
Upon first sip, I noticed was how soft the scent of the coffee was just that itself lets me know that this isn’t as strong of a coffee compared to all the others I’ve tried. I’m able to smell a scent of lemon and orange which really stand out for me whenever I take a whiff. This coffee does have a subtle bitterness to it, but it’s barely noticeable. So far just the flavor of this coffee has made this my favorite tasting coffee so far and I could see myself drinking this one on a regular basis.
PRO-TIP- Add some sugar for a sweeter taste. One of my latest favorite creamers is a caramel macchiato flavor. Who doesn’t love that?

Vegetable oil spray
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup canola oil
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 tablespoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup of Uganda Bugisu (brewed)
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 tablespoon corn syrup
1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- To make the cake: Place the cup of brewed Uganda Bugisu coffee, butter, and cocoa in a small saucepan or microwave-safe bowl. Heat, stirring, until the butter melts. Remove from the heat, and whisk until smooth. Let the mixture cool for 10 minutes.
- While the chocolate is cooling, put the sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flour into a mixing bowl, whisking to combine.
- Pour the cooled chocolate mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients, and mix until thoroughly combined. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl, and mix again to incorporate any residue.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the vanilla, eggs, and heavy cream. Mix into the chocolate batter, stirring until thoroughly combined.
- Thoroughly grease a 10- to 12-cup Bundt pan, preferably non-stick. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake the cake for 50 to 55 minutes, until a long toothpick or skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Note: a pan with a dark interior will bake the cake more quickly; start checking at about 40 minutes.
- Remove the cake from the oven, wait 5 minutes, and turn the pan over onto a cooling rack. After 5 more minutes, lift the pan off the cake. Let the cake cool completely before icing.
- To make the icing: Combine the chocolate and cream in a microwave-safe bowl, or in a saucepan set over medium heat. Heat until the cream starts to bubble around the edges.
- Remove from the heat, and stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Spoon the icing over the top of the cake, letting it drip down the sides.
- Store any leftover cake at room temperature, well wrapped, for several days. Freeze for longer storage.
PRO TIP: To intensify the chocolate flavor of this cake and cut down on the sweetness level, try a stronger brew of Teasia Coffee .

Hey guys I’m Paulina! I’m a recent college graduate trying to find my way in the workforce while balancing my social/ family life along the way. I’m a very busy person so any chance I’m able to take some ‘me time’ I do. I like going on long jogs, hiking, reading, Netflix (binge-watching), crafting and above all staying physically and mentally healthy.
I’ve recently started being more attentive to the things a put in my body as well as to the things I’m not. Teas are a great and delicious way to give my body a boost without adding harsh chemicals nor unnecessary sugars I don’t need. Not to mention they all have health benefits as well as most have antioxidants. What I love most about Teasia Teas specifically are the wide range of flavors offered, sure to meet and exceed anyone’s taste buds!
Day 1: Rose Black Tea
Flavor Highlights: I like this tea with a splash of milk to balance with the bitterness of it. This tea is a fun option for when you’re wanting to get creative in the kitchen. It is a great drink to serve cold, blended, and even used for a cocktail.
This tea also pairs great with a spicy snack. This is a definite romantic drink with different personalities depending on how it is worked into a drink, which is something we can’t say about many teas.
Let me know in the comments below on your favorite way of drinking rose black tea. If you haven’t tried it yet, I definitely recommend it. Since it’s the summer, add a few ice cubes in it and enjoy.
Stay tuned for the next tea I’m trying!
