Today’s Cool Caribbean inspired recipe of mini bundt ‘tea’ cakes is brought to us by veg2nonveg_kitchen
Did I mention it was a Bundt ‘tea’ cake? Yes it is! The tea flavour is infused into the cake batter, I recently tried the amazing Cool Caribbean Oolong tea (Mango, pineapple and rose flavored) from Tea and the Gang and fell in love with this flavour from the very first sip 😉 So I tried to create a new recipe using this beautiful flavo ur.
You can use any tea flavour for this recipe though, so if you fancy trying something else, it is entirely your choice.
- 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons of corn starch
- 6 tablespoons of sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon of baking soda

- ¼ cup of sour cream
- ½ cup of milk
