Do you love a hot cup of tea once or a few times a day? Do you like baking and eating great snacks with that amazing cup with friends? Tea muffins are tasty snacks which you can enjoy during your break or brunch. Our tea muffins are light with a crispy outer shell and your choice of sweet or savoury toppings which will almost immediately improve your mood during cold winter months.

Tips for your tea muffins

These are only snacks for tea-time, so we suggest using a small muffin tin for your muffins. They will come out of the oven with a golden brown outer shell witha fluffy interior. Pour some melted butter and/or honey over these sweet treats for a really delicious surprise. You can also turn them into savoury treats with some cheese or go another sweet route with your favourite jam and whipped cream.
