While flipping through some magazine clippings, I came across this recipe for Chocolate Earl Grey Pound Cake. I can’t remember what magazine it was in, but I’m sure it’s been in my file for quite some time.
Doesn’t this look yummy? Perfect for Sunday afternoon tea.
I’ve made a similar recipe that used strong black coffee, but I liked the idea of Earl Grey tea as part of the liquid. Since my stoneware bundt pan was stored away somewhere in the basement, I used a regular tube pan instead. Not as pretty but okay for a family cake.
The recipe called for a 300 degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
I took it out of the oven 20 minutes before the recommended time. It probably would have been done in 45 minutes. Maybe I need to check my oven for temperature setting accuracy. Either that or use my stoneware for baking.
The cake was quite good but didn’t have a noticeable Earl Grey flavor. The recipe did include an Earl Grey Dark Chocolate Sauce that would probably have added more tea flavor.
The boys will make short work of the cake, served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. If you’d like this cake recipe please let me know.
