Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 Earl Grey Tea bags
  • icing sugar for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare a Bundt pan by buttering the pan and lightly dusting with flour. Set aside.
  3. Heat up the 1 cup of milk (I just microwaved mine until hot), then add the 2 tea bags to the hot milk and let steep at least 10 minutes. Set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
  5. Add the eggs, one at a time.
  6. Then add vanilla, and mix well.
  7. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, and baking powder.
  8. To the butter mix, add 1/3 of the flour mix, then 1/2 of the tea milk. Repeat until all combined.
  9. Pour into the prepared Bundt pan.
  10. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  11. Once the cake has baked, let it cool for about 10 minutes in the pan, then turn the cake out onto a plate, and sprinkle with icing sugar.
