This Earl Grey Yogurt Loaf Cake is soft, moist and eggless! All of the flavor in this loaf comes from steeped earl grey tea. No extracts or flavorings required.Jump To Recipe
This loaf is an earl grey tea lovers dream! Its easy to make and all of the flavor comes from steeped tea. I like to serve this cake simply, but it would be delicious with macerated berries and whipped cream.
Plant Milk: I used Oatly Oatmilk, here. Any plant milk will work!
Earl Grey Tea: My top pick is Twinnings loose leaf Earl Grey Tea. It has a lot of flavor which makes it perfect for baking.
Sugar: Regular Granulated sugar, here.
Yogurt: I used So Delicious Plain Unsweetened Coconut Yogurt, but any unsweetened yogurt will work, here. Just don't use Greek Style!
Oil: I used canola oil.
Vanilla: For background flavor.
Flour: Regular all purpose flour, here.
Leaveners: A combination of baking powder and baking soda help this Earl Grey Yogurt Loaf Cake rise tall and keep it light and fluffy.
Salt: For balance.
This loaf cake is easy to make and uses simple methods.
Start by steeping the earl grey tea in the plant milk.
Then, strain the tea leaves out. Make sure to press the tea leaves to get as much liquid out as possible.
Next, combine the sugar, yogurt, oil, tea infused milk and vanilla in a large bowl and whisk away.
Now, add the dry ingredients into the bowl and whisk until a batter is formed.
Finally, scrape the batter into a prepared loaf pan and bake the Earl Grey Yogurt Loaf Cake.
And thats it!
The only piece of equipment that is different than most of my other recipes is a fine mesh strainer.
This is necessary to strain the tea leaves out of the milk. If you don't have one, you can use cheese cloth.
Top Recipe Tip
Strain the tea infused milk into a measuring cup to be sure that you have the correct amount of liquid.
You should have just under a half of a cup. If you are some where close to that, thats great. If not, press the tea leaves more firmly.
To store this eggless Earl Grey Yogurt Loaf Cake, transfer the cake slices into an air tight container and store at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Or freeze for up to a month.
To defrost, pop a piece into a microwave or toaster oven depending on your preferred texture.
