Sure! Here's a recipe for chamomile cupcakes:


  1. 1 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  3. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  4. 2 tablespoons dried chamomile flowers
  5. 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  6. 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  7. 2 large eggs
  8. 1/2 cup milk
  9. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  10. For the chamomile frosting:
  11. 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  12. 2 cups powdered sugar
  13. 2 tablespoons chamomile tea (brewed and cooled)
  14. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the milk to a gentle simmer over low heat. Add the dried chamomile flowers to the milk, remove from heat, and let it steep for 10 minutes. Strain the milk to remove the flowers and set the infused milk aside to cool.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. In a separate large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. You can use an electric mixer or do this by hand.
  5. Add the eggs, one at a time, to the butter mixture, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  6. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the chamomile-infused milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined after each addition.
  7. Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake liners, filling them about two-thirds full.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
  9. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let them cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. While the cupcakes are cooling, prepare the chamomile frosting. In a mixing bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar, mixing well after each addition.
  11. Add the cooled chamomile tea and vanilla extract to the butter mixture. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  12. Once the cupcakes are completely cooled, frost them with the chamomile frosting using a spatula or a piping bag.
  13. You can garnish the cupcakes with a sprinkle of dried chamomile flowers or a small chamomile tea bag if desired.

Enjoy your homemade chamomile cupcakes!
