Baking frenzy cakes Recipe

Black tea cake with chocolate glaze

This was a small experiment which got successful when I was craving for a tea time cake and I thought why not mix both together.The cake contained the strong brew flavor from the tea besides its usual sweetness and chocolaty taste.I used black leafy tea which is used to make black liquor tea(non-alcoholic ) without milk.It does not provide a strong brew.
