Plum + Roses Brew is great as a tea – however, what’s the point in any ingredient if it can’t be baked into glory? This was exactly my idea when I worked on this blend with Tea Trunk. The black tea base makes it easy to brew in milk, and the delicate notes of roses, plums, peaches and cherries make it a delight to swirl into cake.
I brew the tea in milk for this cake and leave the tea leaves within – they are all perfectly edible and only help enhance the flavours. Alternately, if you have brewed this tea and have leftover, you can also simply reheat with a touch of milk and let cool down before swirling into the cake.
This cake is a delicate kind that is to be had at tea time or for an indulgent breakfast. Slices of this is a perfect addition to your three-tier stand, and may I say, super easy on the eyes!
