Yorkshire muffins are primarily dried fruits that you can take as you prefer. I have dried cherries and raisins. And also good quality black tea. This cake can be safely called dietary, since it does not contain a single gram of oil, and nevertheless, it turns out to be very juicy and tender. Cognac can be replaced with dark rum, whiskey, brandy, or not at all. Making a cupcake is easy, but it takes time. On the first day, dried fruits are infused in tea with cognac and only on the second day you bake a cake.
Prepare the ingredients for making your Yorkshire cake.
Put the black tea in a bowl.
Pour boiling water over the tea and leave for 15 minutes to brew well and cool slightly.
Then strain the tea through a sieve.
Put dried cherries and raisins in the prepared tea leaves.
Add cognac to dried fruits with tea.
Stir these ingredients, let cool. Cover the bowl with cling film and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
Then you can start preparing the dough. Break eggs into a bowl.
Pour sugar into the eggs.
Beat eggs with sugar with a mixer or whisk until the mixture turns white. This will take a few minutes.
Put dried fruits in this mass, which absorbed almost all the tea leaves with cognac in 8 hours. Pour the remaining tea leaves into the eggs with sugar.
Place baking powder and flour into a bowl.
As well as ground cinnamon and nutmeg.
Stir the dough until smooth.
Place in a greased muffin tin. You can just lay out baking paper. To be sure, you can grease the paper with oil.
Bake the cake in the oven preheated to 170-175 degrees for 50-60 minutes. The baking time depends on your oven. Check readiness with a wooden stick. If it comes out dry when pricked, the cake is ready.
Remove the finished cake from the oven and let cool in the form for 10 minutes. Then take out, chill completely, cut and serve.
