How did I get making this and ever since baking it, when we first came to Canada after 4 days of staying in a hotel we moved into the apartment, it was Sunday and late in the evening when we realized we do not have the ingredients to make the morning tea, so off I was sent to the only 24 Hr convenience store near the apartment to buy some Sugar, Milk and Tea. The sugar and milk was easy, when it came to tea well I never made one till then, nor shopped for one. So when I saw Earl Grey Tea I just picked that and walked out not knowing at that time that it cannot be cooked as an Indian Tea. Well the next day in the morning when mama opened the bag for the tea she was like what, but they had no option but had black tea that day. Ever since we had that box in the house with just 2 tea bags used we did not feel like throwing it too, till I saw Anna Olson's Sugar on Food Network, in her Tea Episode she baked this cake and immediately after watching that show I baked one too and it was delicious and now I always have Earl Grey Tea at home. This is so easy and quick to make. You can find the original recipe here. This is how I make it, we prefer it less sweet.
2 cups hot brewed earl grey tea
1 cup raisins
2.5 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup butter, room temperature

2 tbsp hot brewed earl grey tea
6 tbsp icing sugar
- Pre Heat oven to 350 F. Grease a loaf Pan well.
- Soak the raisins in the hot earl grey tea. Set aside.
- In a bowl sift the flour, sugar baking powder, salt, cinnamon and black pepper together.
- Cut the butter in the flour thoroughly. Mix well.
- Add the tea with the raisins and mix till well combined.
- Pour into the loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or till a tester comes out clean.
- Cool it for 10 minutes in the pan.
- Remove from pan and place it on a wire rack. Place a plate below the wire rack.
- Stir the 6 tbsp sugar into the hot tea and brush it over the loaf.
