I’ve left behind the peace of the Catskill mountains, the wee house, playing in the dirt and staring into space for a week long work project in NYC…. oh sigh. You may not hear to much from me this week, other than the screams of job trauma! ha.
But before I go I’ll leave you with this chocolate-y goodness, too good not to try.
Chocolate Earl Grey cake (adapted from Real Simple Magazine)
6 earl grey tea bags or 2 tbsp loose tea steeped in 1 c water
1/2 c butter (1 stick), softened
1 1/2 c sugar
4 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c yogurt
Oven 350F. Grease an 8 c fluted cake or bundt pan.
Beat butter, eggs, sugar until light and creamy. Add chocolate, mix, add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, yogurt and tea. Bake 50 mins, or until a skewer comes out clean.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar. (optional)
