This dessert recipe is a twist on the classic by turning it into a dense, moist pound cake with flecks of Earl Grey tea. The Earl Grey tea in the batter gives the cake some color contrast and a hint of tea flavor, with added orange juice and zest to make it even more aromatic. make sure to use good-quality butter.
Start with cold butter then cream it with sugar on medium speed—this ensures that the mixture will cream slowly but surely. When it starts to turn pale yellow in color, and creamy and shiny in texture, start adding the eggs one at a time. Use eggs at room temperature—this will give the cake a better texture, too.
