Recipes for your home bakery business:

Earl Grey Cake:

How about adding a twist to this Earl Grey tea-infused recipe?

Serving 12 to 14 Total Time: 1 hr 30 mins.



1 cup milk

6 Earl Grey tea bags (or your preferred tea variety)

1 cup unsalted butter (at room temperature), plus additional melted butter for greasing

2 cups granulated sugar

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon kosher salt

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest or Yuzu

3 large eggs (at room temperature)

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup sour cream (at room temperature)



1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Begin by warming the milk in a saucepan and infusing it with the tea bags. Allow it to warm (avoid boiling), then set it aside to steep while preparing the cake.

2. Prepare your muffin cups by greasing them with melted butter, then coating them with granulated sugar for added texture.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.

4. Using a stand mixer, beat the room-temperature butter until smooth and creamy. Add the granulated sugar and orange zest or Yuzu, beating until the mixture is light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl to incorporate all ingredients.

5. Squeeze the liquid from the tea bags and discard them. Whisk the sour cream into the Earl Grey-infused milk until well combined. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture in three parts, alternating with the milk mixture. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix. Fold in any remaining batter using a rubber spatula.

6. Distribute the batter into the prepared muffin cups, smoothing the tops with an offset spatula. Bake until golden brown and a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean, which should take around 55 to 65 minutes. Allow the muffins to cool in the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes before gently loosening the edges and inverting them onto the rack to cool completely.

7. Now comes the fun part! Let your creativity shine as you decorate these delightful muffins with your unique touch. Experiment with various toppings, glazes, or complementary flavours to make them truly stand out.
