Tea Muffins

I’m not a coffee lover. I drink a cup or two a month but tea is my energy drink.**
I love enjoying my breakfast tea with a little milk while making breakfast for my family and one or two more cups of herbal tea in the afternoon, even sometimes a chamomile tea just before bed time.

I needed something to go well with my cup of tea.
Since muffins are a grab and go treat and don’t require much effort to make, why not enjoying them with my afternoon tea? Well, you can call these coffee muffins if that’s what you prefer.

If you’re familiar with my blog than you know how much I love Monet. For the last couple of weeks she and her family have been in my prayers. The loss her family had can’t be easily described in words.
If you haven’t already, please reach out to Monet and her family, and send her love, prayers, and support.  She needs all of us more than ever.
If you’re new to my blog, Monet is one of the bloggers I most admire. She’s a wonderful person inside and outside. Her posts are so relaxing, makes you feel like you’re reading a good novel, not a baking blog.
She writes about the love for her family, about little things that make her happy and lots of sweet memories.
And the baking, oh, I would fly all the way to Texas if she opens a bakery.
Until then, I thought of making these special muffins to share them with my sweet friend, Monet.
I even picked fresh flowers our meeting
Let’s turn the oven on and make some Tea Muffins
Tea Muffins | roxanashomebaking.com
Start by soaking for a couple of hours 2/3 cup raisins or other dried fruits of your choice  in 2-3 tbsp rum hot water.
In the bowl of your stand mixer, measure 4 cups (480gr) all-purpose flour. Make a well in the middle. Pour 1/4 cup lukewarm milk and sprinkle 1 package (7 gr) dry yeast over. Leave to proof about 5 minutes.
When the bubbles appear add 1/4 cup melted butter to the mixture
1 egg and the raisins
In a measuring cup mix 2/3 cup lukewarm milk with 1/4 cup (50gr) sugar and a pinch of salt.
With the dough attachment start mixing at low speed, slowly adding the sweetened milk until the dough cleans itself from the sides of the bowl.
At this point you may have to adjust the quantity of the milk/flour used. The dough should be soft and elastic.
Put the dough into a greased bowl, cover with clear film and let at room temperature until it doubles in volume.
When risen divide the dough into 18 small balls placing each ball into your regular size muffin/cupcake pan. You can grease the pan or simply place a muffin paper cup inside.
Let the muffins at room temperature until you heat the oven at 375F. That should take no more than 5-10 minutes.
Bake the muffins for about 17-20 minutes or until golden.
Immediately after baking brush them with honey.
