Lime, Blueberry and Earl Grey Tea Cake

I am just gonna leave this here.



 Lime, Blueberry and Earl Grey Tea Cake


  • 150 g unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp heaped Earl Grey tea leaves
  • 220 g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 200 g thick Greek yoghurt 
  • 200 g plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp soda bi-carb 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • zest + juice of 2 lemons (1 if its a large lemon)
  • 100 g  blueberries


  1. Preheat oven to 160 C. Grease and line a 22cm x 8cm loaf tin with baking paper. Place the butter in a small saucepan over a medium low heat along with the tea leaves and stir until melted. Set aside for 20 minutes to infuse. Strain through a fine sieve and set aside.
  2. Place all the ingredients except the blueberries in a bowl and stir well to combine. Add the blueberries and mix through carefully. Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 1 hour, or until the cake is cooked and a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out cleanly.

I would love to hear from you!
