Earl Grey Tea chiffon

I was wondering how Eary Grey Tea will taste like, as I'm not really a tea lover. The only tea i drink frequently are Green tea, Lipton and Red tea. I dislike the flowery taste or fruity taste of certain tea my friend recommend me. Errr... Anyway it seem like alot blogger are using this to bake cakes or even cookies. I decided to try it out.

using a "7 inch" cake tin


1 tbsp Earl Grey tea powder (about 3 satchels)
100g cake flour
11/2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsps salt
3 egg yolks
40g caster sugar
50ml vegetable oil
75ml water

3 egg whites
40g caster sugar


  • Hand whisk egg yolks with sugar until dissolves. 
  • Add in salt, 40g caster sugar, oil, earl grey tea and sifted flour mixture. Whisk until incorporated.
  • In a clean, dry stainless steel mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until frothy and foamy.
  • Add 40g caster sugar and beat until just before stiff peak.
  • Fold in 1/3 of the meringue and mix with the egg yolk until well combined. Add the remaining meringue and mix well.
  • Pour the batter into "7 inch" cake tin. Bake in pre-heated oven at 180C for 45 mins. Remove the foil and bake for 10 mins.
  • Immediately invert it after taking out from the oven. When it cools, remove it from the mould.
Notes: Preheat oven at 180C for 25 mins using top and bottom heat in the lowest rack.
