Earl Grey Pound Cake

Help!! I can’t stop cooking!! And I’m back on my pound cake roll again! (Click here to see more pound cake recipes).

Well, the reasons why I love pound cakes (both eating and making them) is because firstly, they are just so easy to make, and secondly, because they make such good company at breakfast, tea, and even after dinner. And mostly, because we need something to eat for breakfast, and ever since I discovered that I could make stuff to eat instead of just buying things all the time, I think it’s way more interesting to get down and dirty and whip up something delicious instead of always heading to the nearest supermarket for S.O.S.

So, why Earl Grey for flavouring this time, you might ask. Well, it was really very random. I was googling the internet for different types of pound cake recipes yesterday, when I chanced upon a couple of Earl Grey pound cake recipes. Honestly, I didn’t have any any idea how earl grey tea tasted like, but it sounded so nice, and high and mighty and English and expensive. (It was probably just some weird idea construed by my highly active imagination, but whatever.) So the main point is that I made it in the end, and I kind of like the taste. So let’s share all the good things we can. Here goes.
