Fluffy Citrus earl grey Cotton Chiffon cake step by step
- Brew the tea bags in hot milk until a deep caramel color for 12-15 minutes and squeeze out the tea bags..
- Chill the hot tea in fridge until cold.
- I'm a medium heavy bottom sauce pot, heat up the oil until it leaves skinny streaks when swirled around slightly.
- Take it off the heat immediately and add the sifted cake flour with the cold tea mixture and stir its a spatula quickly until combined.
- Next add the whole egg and egg yolk one at a time stirring until combined after each addition.
- Add in the crushed tea leave and the orange zest and mix until smooth and shiny, if too thick, add 1-2 tablespoons of cold milk (the batter should be thick and flowing slowly like lava).
- Strain the mixture for extra smoothness and set aside.
- In the clean grease free bowl of a stand or hand mixer, add in the room temperature egg white along with the pinch of salt and whip on medium until foamy..
- Add the sugar gradually in three additions until firm peaks form, firmer than soft peak but not quite vertically stiff like stiff peak stage(should still have a slight hook to one side when held upside down).
- With whisk, incorporate a third of the meringue mixture into the egg yolk mixture until homogenous..
- Then with a spatula, fold in egg yolk mixture back into the bowl of the meringues until you see no more lumps or streaks.
- Pour the batter into prepared 9 x5 loaf pan or 8 inch cake tin with only the bottom lined with parchment and the sides not greased.
- Smooth out the top with spatula and tap on counter to remove large air bubbles.
- Set the cake pan in a hot water bath 1/4 inch deep water.
- Bake in a preheated 340 F oven for 15 minutes and 315 for another 40 minutes in the middle rack or lower third rack for toaster ovens.
- Let cake cool in the pan to prevent it from collapsing too much.
- Once cooled, invert onto serving platter and refrigerate over night covered for best results.
- Tips: each oven is different so adjust the temperature accordingly if the cake cracks (temperature is too high).
