earl grey cake with lemon frosting

A beautiful earl grey cake paired with a bright lemon frosting.

I made this for a friend’s birthday since he’s a big fan of tea, I felt that an Earl Grey cake would be a great surprise!

The Earl Grey butter infusion really brings the depth of flavour out in this cake. If I didn’t infuse the tea and butter together, the flavour would have been really weak. Also, make sure you grind the tea into a fine powder since chewing on leaf bits would not create an ideal experience.

Top with sprinkles or lemon peels, what ever sparks the most joy~

Let me know if you enjoyed this recipe!

I used an 8 inch springform pan that was buttered and lined with parchment paper.
