Although our Nunshen team is based in the sunny state of Florida, we are always thoughtful when it comes to our fellow Nunshen drinkers facing a rough winter somewhere in the world.

Very quick and easy to make, this cake offers richness and density without being too heavy. The best part being the light and subtle Nunshen Earl Grey and lemon flavors.

 

You will need :

-       2/3 cup of unsalted butter

-       1 ¼ cups of sugar

-       2/3 cup of milk

-       1 tsp of vanilla

-       2 cups of flour

-       1 tsp of salt

-       1 ½ tsp of baking powder

-       3 eggs

-       zest of ½ lemon

-       4 Nunshen Earl Grey tea bags

-       For the glaze : ½ cup of powdered sugar, 1 tbsp of lemon juice, ½ tsp of vanilla extract


Easy Recipe

-       Bring the milk to a simmer in a small saucepan.

-       Take it off the heat and immerse the Nunshen Earl Grey tea. Cover the pan and set aside for 40 minutes.

-       Squeeze the teabags and set aside to cool some more

-       Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark

-       Grease and line 8 mini loaf tins with a strip of baking paper along the base

-       Cream the butter and sugar together using an electric whisk during 10 minutes, until light and fluffy texture

-       Add the eggs one by one and mix well.

-       Add half of the flour and half of the tea-infused milk and mix well

-       Add the rest of the flour and milk and mix until flour is completely incorporated

-       Pour the mixture into the mini loaf tins (two thirds full approximately)

-       Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown. To check that they are cooked all the way through, insert a knife into the centre of each one. If it comes out clean they are ready. Set them on a wire rack to cool them down.

 

For the Glaze :

-       Mix the lemon juice, zest and icing sugar together into a smooth paste. It should be quite gloopy so it doesn’t dribble too much down the sides (though a little dribble is okay)

-       Pour over the loaves and leave the icing to set for about 30 minutes. Decorate with sugar flowers (optional) and serve
