These cupcakes are made with chamomile-infused butter and scented with refreshing lemon. The honey buttercream frosting that tops the cupcakes makes them simply irresistible. If you love tea, this will be perfect.
These cupcakes were inspired by Cupcake Project's post on how to bake with tea. It really helped me get the flavour of chamomile into the cupcakes

Test Kitchen Notes
I had to give this recipe a try when I saw the combination of chamomile, lemon, and honey. Sounds like the perfect cup of tea! While making the recipe, I was worried they'd be a leaden, oily mess as there is no rising agent and a lot of butter, but they were delicious. They rose like a dream and were perfectly soft and moist. The chamomile isn't particularly strong, but it provides a lovely backdrop to these lemony, pillowy cakes. Note: I added a little extra sugar to make the frosting come together. —AnnainSydney
