This is the most refreshing drink I ever made and it is so simple to prepare. Here is the recipe:
Crunch in your hand 5-10 fresh lemon myrtle leaves
( dried leaves can also be used, but the flavour is slightly different, and the drink will be a bit less refreshing.
Put them in a pan with 0.5 liter of water and bring to boil. Cut the heat as soon as the water starts to boil, cover and let infuse for 5 minutes. Add sugar to taste. Add 1.5 liter of cold water and 2-3 slices of fresh ginger . Let cool and infuse in your fridge for 12 hours. That’s it !
Orange, Honey and Cinnamon Myrtle Madeleine
This is a very clever recipe combining our Cinnamon Myrtle with orange and honey. Received from https://www.instagram.com/crumbs_and_corks
3/4 cup plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon myrtle (I added a little more it depends how strong you want the flavour) https://www.flavoursofoz.com.au/product/cinnamon-myrtle-spice-leaves-dried-and-ground-copy-2/
1/3 cup sugar
grated zest of 1 orange
2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
6 Tbsp butter, melted and cooled
Preheat oven to 180C
Grate orange rind and add sugar and stir to combine.
Add in eggs and whisk for 2 minutes until light and fluffy.
Whisk in honey and vanilla and then swap to a spatula and gently fold in flour and dry ingredients and combine.
Add in butter and stir gently
Grease madeleine tray and I sprinkle flour and tip off excess to prevent sticking Spoon mixture into each mould until full. Bake in 180 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden on top
Tip out tray onto cooling rack and madeleines will pop out
Some people cool mixtures in fridge before baking but I didn’t
