Spiced Tea Chocolate Egg Free Cake





It 8.33 and I am bored and the dust is collecting on the shelves I simply must dust but instead I am gripped by the need the absolute need to bake a cake. I can bake cakes if there are square or in a loaf tin and one day ( been saying this for years I will bake my nemesis ) the Victoria Sponge.



Ingredients


Preheat the oven to

2 cups of plain flour = 240 grams I believe

1 bottle of sweet tea or iced tea ( mine was spiced )


1 cup of drinking chocolate = 120 grams

2 teaspoons of baking powder.

1 cup of coconut sugar = 120grams or adjust caster sugar to needs



Method

It would be a good idea to sieve the flour in.


After which just plonk everything together.


Having greased a 21lb loaf tin.

Spoon the mixture in .


Bake on 180c for 40 minutes . Do the knife test to check it's cooked all the way through.


You could omit some tea drink and add a little oil if concerned about moistness.

The icing comes pre made from the co op and is salted caramel.

  4. Intrigued by this. I make a tea loaf where I soak the fruit overnight in cold tea - very moist.

  5. Now this has intrigued me, not that I bake, but I always assumed eggs would be a must have ingredient.
