If you love Earl Grey tea and chocolate, this cake is for you.

How to Make It

Heat oven to 350° F. Coat an 8-cup fluted tube pan with cooking spray. Brew the tea in the water 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags or strain the leaves and set the brewed tea aside. Using a mixer, beat the butter, eggs, and granulated sugar until fluffy. Blend in the chocolate. Beat in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, yogurt, and brewed tea. Pour into pan. Bake 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out with a few crumbs attached. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes. Turn out of pan and cool. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

I used Stevia instead of sugar and it was very chocolatey and cooked like a regular cake. Served it with sugar free vanilla ice cream, whipped cream & chocolate sauce.

Loved it! Rich, moist, and has a "deep chocolate" taste to it. Was a hit at the tea party I served it at. Next time think I'll serve it with a side of raspberry sauce!

I was hoping that my favorite tea would give the chocolate cake some additional flavor but it didn't. In reality, the tea is included to enhance the chocolate flavor similar to using coffee or espresso powder. It is a solid recipe but nothing special. I put cream cheese icing on top instead of powdered sugar for a lasting effect when served much later.
