Earl Grey Tea Chiffon Cake 伯爵茶戚风蛋糕



Remember I made Earl Grey Tea Cookies which was posted before Chinese New Year last year? This time around I've tweaked and transformed the cookie recipe to this Earl Grey Tea Cake in the pretty heart shaped chiffon cake pan. This cake turned out light, soft and fragrant with the hint of Earl Grey flavour. In fact we finished off this cake within a day. This cake is ideal to serve as tea cake for your guests during Chinese New Year and also on Valentine's Day. 




Earl Grey Tea Chiffon Cake 
伯爵茶戚风蛋糕


    Ingredients:
     55g Plain flour
     2 tbsp Almond ground/meal
     3 Egg yolks (large size egg - 70g each)
     20g Sugar
     50g Canola oil
     80ml Fresh milk
     2 Earl Grey tea bag

     Meringue
     75g Sugar
     3/4 tbsp Corn flour (7g)
     3 Egg whites

     Method:
  • Heat up fresh milk (not boiled and off heat), add Earl Grey tea leaves in it. Cover and leave to cool then strain tea leaves through a fine sieve and set aside (keep tea leaves).
  • Sift flour twice and mix well with almond meal. Combine egg yolks and sugar in a bowl and mix well. Add Earl Grey tea and canola oil and blend together. Add flour mixture and mix well with a hand whisk and lastly add in the tea leaves. Mix well again and  set aside.
  • Make meringue - Combine sugar and corn flour. Beat egg whites until foamy. Add half the sugar and flour mixture and continue beating for a few minutes, then add remaining sugar and flour mixture and beat until egg whites are glossy, with stiff peaks.
  • Gradually pour all the egg mixture into the meringue at low speed then stop machine. Using a rubber spatula and fold the mixture well.
  • Pour batter evenly into the ungreased chiffon cake pan. Gently bang the pan on the table top to release air bubbles.
  • Place cake pan in the pre-heated oven 170C and bake at for about 35-40 minutes then switch oven to lower grill for 5 minutes.
  • When cake is done, remove from oven and turn the pan over. Leave cake to cool in pan.
  • Once cake has cooled completely, carefully run a knife around the sides of the cake to loosen it.

    1. Hi Gek, Just light boil the milk or microwave it. Then add Earl grey leaves in it and cover to get the flavour of Earl Grey tea.
