featuring Irish Pu Erh

To welcome Spring, we made a mouth watering tea-soaked fruit cake recipe that highlights the natural sweetness and textures of some colorful garden grown fruits, as well as the infusion of our tea of the month, Irish Pu Erh. This fruit cake is good to eat morning noon or night, and is the perfect Spring recipe for the season!

 The sour-sweet flavors of the fruits exist harmoniously alongside the earthy, crisp-apple, lemongrass, and rose flavors of the Irish Apple Pu Erh. This fruit cake captures the spirit of spring with lively colors and flavors, as the aroma of baked berry, apple and freshly-tilled earth (thank you, pu erh) swirl in the kitchen.
  1. Heat water in a pot and steep the 8 teaspoons of Irish Pu Erh with a diffuser for 10 minutes to make a very strong tea concentrate. Add the mixed dried fruit and stir well and  leave to soak until the liquid is cold. If you leave the fruit to soak overnight this will infuse more of the tea flavor into the fruit.
  2. Once cool and infused, stir again and set aside.
  3. Pre-heat your oven to 350◦ and grease and line a 9 inch springform cake pan.
  4. Place the flour and butter in a large bowl and use your fingers to rub the fat into the flour until evenly distributed and the mix looks like breadcrumbs.
  5. Add the sugar and Vietnamese Cinnamon then stir well.
  6. Add the eggs and the soaked fruit, along with the Mexican Vanilla Bean Paste and stir until evenly combined.
  7. Pour the mixture into your cake pan and place in the oven and bake for around an hour or until the cake has risen, golden and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool.
