Earl Grey Chocolate Cake

Eeeeep! Did you see this amazing Earl Grey Chocolate Cake recipe that Tracy from Shutterbean posted? YUM. I’m not usually wild about chocolate cake, but if you’re adding Earl Grey–gimme that, now! If it isn’t obvious from my Instagram feed, tea posts or hot chocolate roundup–I am an Earl Grey tea zealot. This looks AMAZING!

  1. I clicked through to Shutterbean, what a gorgeous site! Seriously, I’m not always impressed by chocolate cake either – it’s usually way too rich and heavy or dry and oversweet – but this looks perfect. I love the sound of the floral tea with the dark chocolate flavour.

    tea is a highly underrated cooking ingredient, methinks.

    if a baking recipe calls for water i usually replace it with tea for a little more flavour. okay, it’s not often that recipes call for water, admittedly – more likely butter or oil and milk or something – but you get the idea. i have also soaked dried fruits in tea instead of water when baking, always earl grey, my absolute favourite black tea.

    and chocolate! really. enough said.

    I made this today and it had an interesting flavor but was a bit dry. I might increase the yogurt or tea amounts.

    This looks amazing! I have a huge bag of Koni Creme Earl Grey sitting in my cupboard… I’d have to figure out the loose to bag ratio, but it shouldn’t be too hard. Yum, yum, yum…

    Oh! If you’re looking for more tea recipes, Phuong Le has quite a few at on her blog, theteachick.com. Her Aphrodisiac Chai Chocolate Cake is to die for.

    Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
    Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to
    give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!
