Earl Grey Tea Loaf (Domestic Gothess) is from the book Great British Vegan. A fruity tea loaf to spread with vegan butter (we like Naturli, as it’s free from palm oil). A lovely mid-morning or afternoon snack.
Avoid caffeine for pregnancy/nursing and nuts for young children. Keep recipes away from pets due to unsafe ingredients like dried fruits, nutmeg and chocolate. Read food safety for people & pets.
Earl Grey tea is flavoured with oil of bergamot, so choose an organic version to ensure it’s not artificially flavoured. The tea is apparently so-called after former Prime Minister Charles Grey, who ruled this land in teh 1830s. The story goes that the tea was blended by a Chinese mandarin at the family seat in Northumberland, however others say that it is named after a tea merchant called William Grey, and the ‘Earl’ was added on, to make the tea more posh-sounding!
Or keep things simple with this fruit loaf (Domestic Gothess). With this and a cup of tea, this is like going back 80 years in time!
This fruit cake (Ele Vegan) has a chocolate glaze on top for something different. Michaela’s recipes are always simple and always work!
