My hubby is a huge tea fan and loves rooibos. You may have noticed recently that I have been using a lot more tea in my bakes for him.
Today I am sharing a cake that contains rooibos red bush tea. Rooibos is naturally caffeine free, has a high level of antioxidants and is low on tannins.
This is what I did...
Rooibos and Marmalade Cake
150g caster sugar
3 eggs, at room temperature
150g self raising flour
1 tbsp rooibos tea
3 tbsp Robertson's Golden Shred Marmalade
Pre heat the oven to 180C fan
1 - Beat together the butter and caster sugar until light a creamy
2 - Gradually add the eggs along with a little flour to prevent curdling
3 - Sift in the flour and mix until all of the ingredients are evenly combined
4 - Stir in the rooibos tea and the marmalade
5 - Pour the mixture into a prepared cake tin and place in the centre of the pre heated oven and bake for 40 minutes or until thoroughly baked
6 - Once thoroughly baked leave to cool in the tin for 15 minutes before removing and placing on a cooling wire
This cake is lovely and light and the combination of rooibos with the tangy marmalade go perfectly together.
