Rooibos Tea Loaf

Who wouldn’t love a delicious tea loaf that’s light and full of flavour? We’re crazy about this cake, and the orange glacé icing really adds a whole new dimension to the flavour.

Amp up the orange with a little fresh grated orange zest on top!

Ingredients:

80ml Boiling water

3 Laager Rooibos teabags

180g Butter

180g Castor sugar

10ml Orange rind, grated

3 extra-large Eggs, beaten

120g Cake flour

120g Self-raising flour

1ml Salt

 

For the icing:

250ml Icing sugar

15ml Orange juice

A little hot Laager Rooibos tea

 

Method:

  • Add the boiling water to the teabags and allow to stand, infuse, and cool.
  • Cream the butter and add the sugar and orange rind. Beat until light and fluffy. Gradually add the well-beaten eggs.
  • Sift together the flours and salt and fold into the butter mixture, alternating with the tea until well blended.
  • Pour into a greased loaf tin and bake for 40 – 45 minutes 180ºC or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • To make the glacé icing, sift the icing sugar into a bowl and add the orange juice and sufficient leftover tea to form a mixture that will run smoothly when dropped from a spoon. If the icing is too thin, add more icing sugar to correct the consistency.
  • Ice the top of the cake and decorate with a sprinkling of dry tea.
