The perfect balance of spice and savouriness from Moringa Green Tea by Chai Diaries against the sweet and sour blueberry jam in this cake is a sheer delight to the eyes and palate.
Resembling a layered coffee cake, but prettier and burst of gorgeous colours – this cake will end up having a permanent spot on your craving list.
Making this cake is pretty straight forward and the highlight is this honey buttercream style frosting.
I use very strong cold brewed tea (approximately 3 tbsp of loose leaf in a cup of water, steeped overnight) that brings out that gorgeous colour and taste. My personal opinion is that I can reduce the sugar amount by a good few tablespoons as the jam is quite sweet. But most would keep the sugar amount as is below. The frosting is a mild honey buttercream speckled with vanilla bean, topped with a little bit more blueberry jam.
