Sweet Tea Cupcakes


1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

2 cups sugar

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 large egg whites

1 egg yolk

3/4 cup milk

¾ cup unsweetened tea

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake pan with liners.

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt.  In a separate bowl, combine egg whites, milk, tea and vanilla extract. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture to butter mixture then add half the milk/tea mixture. Continue to alternate beginning and ending with flour mixture. Scrape bowl and beat often. Spoon batter into cup cake liners until they are 2/3 of the way full. Bake cupcakes about 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center emerges clean. Cool in pan on a rack.
