‘Tis the season to be jolly… fa la la la la la la….
Has the Christmas bug bitten you yet? There’s no snow but I’m imagining a lovely white Christmas in my head and surrounded by stockings and candy cane.
As I had mentioned before when I introduced you to Food & Wellness at The House of MG, I am developing recipes with the various gourmet and artisan products we keep. Today I share with you a wonderful Christmas recipe that will have your home smelling oh-so-good, warm and basically a hug in a muffin cup!
Tea Lab is an Indian company with delicious teas, flavoured with real ingredients, flowers, spices and everything possible. This Christmas, they have a limited edition flavour called “Gingerbread Tea”, made with ginger, orange, cloves and liquorice! It’s literally Christmas heaven. And what does Kitchen Therapy do best? Make cake of course!
I brewed the tea in milk with some extra fresh ginger and whisked it into the muffin batter with additional ground cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. I used a bit of maple syrup as well, but you can substitute with honey as well. I use a simple vanilla glaze, because these muffins are simply delicious on their own, but if you’re feeling energetic and ambitious, go ahead and make a cream cheese cinnamon frosting (1/2 cup cream cheese, 1 cup icing sugar, 1 tbsp milk, vanilla, whisk it away, and sprinkle some cinnamon on top!) and slather a thick layer on top.
Gingerbread Tea by Tea Lab is available at Food & Wellness at The House of MG, Ahmedabad.
