Earl Grey Tea Butter Cake

I did earl grey tea chiffon before and had always wanted to make this as well.But somehow other new recipes kept popping out that i totally forgot about this until yesterday.Neo from my group made this and another member Sally kept raving on it.So there came my motivation. haha!
I am using my usual butter cake recipe but creaming method instead for this. Soft,fluffy,moist and fragant..totally addicted. I gave some to my little gal's teachers and they loved it. Try it and get addicted ;) Remember to eat it the next day after you baked it.The whole cake will be fully infused by the fragrance of the tea.Ahhh~~*taking another piece~
