Do you like green tea flavored pastries? Here is another aromatic tea flavored butter cake recipe which has a richer taste than green tea and I highly recommend you to try it out.
Aromatic Earl Grey Tea Cake
(A) Sugar Syrup 糖浆
25g Sugar 糖
50g Hot Water 滚水
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice 柠檬汁
300g Salted Butter 咸牛油 (softened to room temp 室内回温)
190 Icing Sugar 糖粉
30g Glucose 葡萄糖 / Corn Syrup 玉米糖浆
6 Eggs (room temp 室内回温)
10g Earl Grey Tea Dust 伯爵茶粉 (from tea bags 取自茶包)
30g Almond Powder 杏仁粉
2 Tbsp Grated Lemon Zest 柠檬皮丝
2 Tbsp Fresh Milk 鲜奶
300g Plain Flour 面粉
1/4 Tsp Baking Powder 发粉
Preheat oven to 170C degrees. Line a 30x11.5x7.5cmH loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
Combine sugar and hot water (A) until dissolved. Stir in lemon juice and set aside.
Combine and sift (D) together twice. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine and beat ingredients (B) together until light and very fluffy. Gradually add eggs in 6 additions until well mix before adding another. Add tea dust, almond powder, lemon zest and milk. Mix well.
Fold in sifted flour mixture (D) with rubber spatula until combined.
Transfer batter into the prepared loaf pan and level the surface with spatula. Make a lengthwise cut down the middle of the cake batter with spatula.
Bake in the middle rack of a preheated oven at 170C degrees for 50 mins until cooked.
Unmould cake from pan and remove parchment paper. Immediately brush the cake with sugar lemon syrup (A) while the cake is still warm.
Allow to cool completely before wrapping with cling firm. Best serve after storing the cake overnight.
