Earl Grey Blueberry Cake

A zingy cupcake with refreshing Earl Grey tea to "lighten" the load a bit. A great afternoon treat with, yes, a cup of Earl Grey Ceylon tea of course :)

Makes 2 small rectangular cake tins

  • 1/2 cup boiling water

  • Let cool for 5 minutes, and then turn onto a wire rack.
