Earl Grey Chiffon Cake - by Peggy Lee

Earl Grey Chiffon Cake.
Ingredients of Earl Grey tea milk:
120 ml fresh milk
6 gm (about 6 teaspoons) Earl Grey loose leaves
5 egg yolks
20 gm castor sugar
110 ml Earl Grey tea milk
100 gm cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
80 ml canola oil
Ingredients of meringue:
5 egg whites
½ tsp cream of tartar
60 gm castor sugar
Put the fresh milk in a little sauce pan. Heat over medium heat until it’s really hot, not boiled though. Add the earl grey tea leaves. Cover and remove from heat. After cooling down, drain out tea leaves through a fine sieve and keep them. Top up with more milk to get 110 ml if needed. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 170C.
Beat egg yolks and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the tea milk. Add tea leaves. Sift in cake flour and baking powder. Lightly combine together. Stir in one-third of the oil at a time. Combine well and get a smooth batter. Set aside.
Use a large clean mixing bowl, without any trace of oil or water, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until bubbles form. Add the cream of tartar. After mixing well, add the 60 grams of sugar in three batches, about one-third at a time, and beat well between additions. Continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
Fold-in the beaten egg whites into the batter with a spatula.
Pour the batter into the cake pan. Bake in the preheated oven for about 35 to 40 minutes. An inserted skewer comes out clean.
Remove the cake from the oven. Invert the pan immediately on a wire rack. Let it cool completely.
Happy Baking
