  1. Step 1

    Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Butter a 12-hole madeleine tin well. Put the 75g of butter and the tea leaves in a microwaveable bowl and heat for 15-20 seconds or until melted. Leave to sit for 10 mins.
  2. Step 2

    Use an electric whisk to beat together the egg, honey and sugar for 1 min until pale and fluffy. Sift in the flour and baking powder along with a pinch of salt, before stirring in the melted butter and tea. Stir in the yogurt and lemon zest before spooning evenly into the prepared tin. Depending on the size of your tin, you might get more than 12 madeleines – bake the remainder after the first batch.
  3. Step 3

    Bake for 8-10 mins or until golden and puffed up. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before carefully turning out onto a wire rack. Sift over a little icing sugar then eat while still warm with a cup of tea.
