Last week, I had a sudden crave for buttery buttery pound cake (also due to the butter is going to expire soon ;p). With some freshly made marron glac in my fridge, it has to be a chestnut buttery cake. Since I am a sucker of new combination, I wanted to try a new variation. I was looking around in the pantry for inspiration, and the box of earl grey on the top shelf summoned me!

This cake, oh my, it's fragrant and delicious! First you taste the fragrant earl grey blends with the liquor flavour, then comes in the nutty chestnut and finally the buttery texture. You got to try it!

It tasted the best after a day or so sitting in the refrigerator to allow the liquor flavour sinks in.

This looks and sounds sooooo tasty.  I spent the last hour drooling over your past posts on Craftster and your blog.  So much beautiful food and wonderful photography showcasing said food! *_*  Unfortunately, I am a very inexperienced baker so I will have to suffer these cravings for buns, cakes, and cookies until I go to a Chinese bakery or work up the guts to follow one of your recipes, whichever comes first.

I've used teas in cakes before but always brewed as a liquid, never the leaves. I will be trying this one for sure, thanks!

i'm such a sucker for earl grey. that and chestnuts together, mmmm. i'm glad you put the recipe in too, i was just wondering how you got the tea in. i was thinking infused and those little spots were poppyseeds or something.
