This Earl Grey Tea Cake has hints of lavender and bergamot orange mixed into a delicious vanilla cake.
It’s Friday…I do declare it’s time for tea and cake. Yes? I made you an Earl Grey Tea cake. Yes, a cake with tea baked right into it, and it’s as good as it sounds!
I have been dreaming of this cake for quite a while now. Something about baking with tea is very intriguing to me. I mean sipping tea with desserts is a perfect after dinner past time isn’t it, so why not add tea to the dessert itself? YES. I’m not sure all teas are cut out for baking, but Earl Grey tea certainly is. It’s flavour lends itself perfectly to a simple vanilla cake.
I have a love affair with Earl Grey tea…on a side note, have you ever tried the Earl Grey Tea Latte from Second Cup? If not, you should, it’s delicious.
I used a Lady Grey Earl Grey tea for this cake, which has hints of lavender and bergamot orange…so good. (Lady Grey tea is Earl Grey tea with the addition of lavender)
Steeped in whole milk, and added to my basic vanilla pound cake recipe, this cake is divine. Oh my.
The flavour is light and sweet and perfect for breakfast, or lunch or really any time. Because cake needs no excuse does it? 😉Print
