Red Wolfe TeaChef Level 3

Coffee cake made better with some delightful earl grey bravo. Mine was not pretty, but it was delicious.

15 m 10


  • 1 cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp earl grey bravo
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp spice mix containing cinnamon (or just cinnamon)
  • ⅓ cup butter
  • a few twists of Baker’s Secret (optional. ground coca nibs, nutmeg, and vanilla sugar work too)


Heat up the milk, and steep the earl grey for about 4 minutes. Then strain and mix the milk with oil, eggs, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Add some baker’s secret, mix em together, and then spread half into a pan. In another bowl, prepare the streusel. Melt the bitter and pour over the brown sugar. Mix in the spice blend and a few twists of baker’s secret. Put a layer of streusel on the cake, then more batter, then more streusel. Cover with tin foil and bake at 350 for 25-30 min, then take off the foil and bake another 10. Enjoy!
