This amazing recipe was created by Tea Rep: Audrey
What you will need:
For the doughnuts:
- 3 Easter Egg Nests tea bags
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar
- 2 Perfect Tea Spoons baking powder
- 1/2 Perfect Tea Spoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 1/2 Perfect Tea Spoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup sprinkles
- Cooking spray
For the frosting:
- 4 tablespoons heavy cream
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 oz semisweet chocolate chopped
What to do:
1. The first thing you need to do is preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and coat a doughnut pan with cooking spray.
2. Next, melt the butter and let 2 of the Easter Egg Nests tea bags steep in the butter for 10 minutes. Strain the tea from the butter. Then, steep the third tea bag in the milk for 10 minutes.
3. Place the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Then, add the eggs, butter, milk and vanilla extract to the bowl. Stir again until smooth.
4. Place the batter in a piping bag or freezer bag. Snip off the tip of the bag with scissors and pipe the batter into the wells of the pan. Reserve the remaining batter for the second batch.
5. Bake the doughnuts for 10 minutes in the oven, let them rest for 3 minutes, and then remove them from the pan and place on a cooling rack.
6. Wipe the pan with a paper towel and coat with cooking spray. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
7. Once all of your doughnuts have cooked, let them cool. Whilst that is happening, we are going to make the frosting!
8. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate, heavy cream and vanilla together until combined. Then, when your doughnuts are cool, dip each doughnut into either the chocolate. Top with sprinkles.
9. Let the doughnuts sit for about 15 minutes until the frosting has started to firm up, then serve!
