.tea + cake.

This Sunday I would like to share a recipe that was first shared with my by a dear friend, C. It is simply delicious and an incredibly moist cake.

Earl Grey Chocolate Cake


  • 6 Earl Grey tea bags
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 4 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Grease and flour a Bundt pan
  • Brew the tea in the water. Remove the tea bags and set the brewed tea aside
  • Using a mixer, beat the butter, eggs, and sugar until fluffy. Blend in the melted chocolate. Beat in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, yogurt, and brewed tea. Pour into a pan
  • Bake 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out with a few crumbs attached. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes
  • Turn out of pan and cool. Dust with powdered sugar
PLEASE NOTE: I have made this cake several times and have never been able to get it to come out of the Bundt pan in one piece. Next time I will probably make cupcakes with this batter, or put it in a loaf pan.
