  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 80g caster sugar
  • 70g vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, room temparature
  • 3tbsp milk
  • 1 black tea bag

Method

  1. Peel and diced an apple, and slice another apple. (one is for mix with other ingredients, and another one which with skin is for topping)
  2. Preheat oven to 170c. Line the baking paper in a loaf pan.
  3. Whisk the eggs and mix with sugar. Add oil and milk, and stir until well combined.
  4. Add flour, baking powder and tea leaf, and stir until just combined.
  5. Add diced apple to the mixture, stir until just combined.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan, place sliced apple on the top
  7. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

Notes... You can use any tea bag or tea leaf such as black tea, darjeering tea, or earl grey tea.

  • This sounds interesting but looks amazingly delicious. I have seen recipes that call for tea(made with water) used but not actual tea leaves Must try this. thanks for sharing.

  • The family loved this though the younger children picked the apple off the top. So next time will skip apple on top for younger ones.
