Camomile, Lemon and Honey Cupcakes!!

I had to wait in this morning for a delivery of 5000 roof tiles ( when will the builders be gone!!) and had the choice of baking or learning lines for forthcoming tour of Vagina Monologues - Baking won!!!
Looked in cupboard and found some camomile,honey and lemon teabags. Could they combined into a cake mix? Well I gave it a go!! They tasted delicious!!
Here's what I did -

Camomile, Lemon and Honey Cupcakes

250 g Soft Butter
250 g Caster Sugar
4 medium eggs
contents of 3 camomile, honey and lemon teabags
4 tsps lemon oil
1 tblsp honey
250 g Self Raising flour

Cream the butter and sugar together.
Add eggs and beat well.
Add teabag contents, lemon oil and honey.
Fold in flour.
Spoon into cake cases.
Bake in 180 oC oven for 15 mins

Ice with icing sugar mixed with lemon juice and decorate with jelly lemons!!! ( Take me back to my childhood!!!)

See what you think............
