When I started baking during university, Anna Olson was the baking superstar of Food Network Canada (when cooking shows had substance). Her Earl Grey tea loaf is one of the first baking recipes I made, and I probably made it a dozen times back in the day.
I came across the recipe again, and realized the only non-vegan ingredient is butter, so it could be easily made dairy-free by using vegan butter or stick margarine.
Making the recipe again for the first time in at least 10 years, I was reminded how simple the recipe is. No fancy techniques or special ingredients. If you don’t have Earl Grey tea, any good quality tea could be used.
The tea loaf recipe makes a very wet batter, but don’t worry… it bakes up nicely into a moist (almost gooey) cake. The glaze adds a nice touch of sweetness but isn’t required for moistness so it could be omitted.
Keep this one in your back pocket for a quick but delicious snack.
