Thé des Alizés Cake


Makes one 9-inch loaf cake
The batter
  • 4 eggs (total 220 g / 1 C)
  • 200 g (1 C) caster sugar
  • 160 g (¾ C) unsalted butter, melted
  • 200 g (1⅔ C) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 8 g Alizes Winds Tea for steeping + 2 Tbsp to mix in
The glaze
  • 100 g (¾ C) powdered sugar
  • 20 mL (1 Tbsp) cold brewed tea


  • Steep 8 g of tea in 120 mL (½ C) water at 75°C (165°F) for 3 minutes. Remove the tea and let cool.

1.The batter

  • Preheat the oven to 170°C (350°F).
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and caster sugar. Add the eggs, flour, and baking powder, then thin with 100 mL (6 Tbsp) of the brewed tea.
  • Grind the two tablespoons of tea leaves and add to the batter.
  • Line your loaf pan with parchment paper (to hold it in place, lightly grease the pan first with butter).
  • Pour the batter into the pan (it should be ⅔ full). Bake for 40 minutes, then check for doneness (a knife inserted into the middle should come out clean). Gently turn the cake out onto a cooling rack.

2. The glaze

  • Put the powdered sugar in a small bowl and gradually add the brewed tea while stirring with a fork. The mixture should not be too runny.
  • Gently spread glaze over the cooled cake using a spatula.
  • Leave cake uncovered to allow glaze to set.
