marygal8 asked: Hey! Any recipes involving red velvet cake or creme caramel???
Hi! Sorry it’s taken me so long to respond—I left DT a few months ago in favour of a full-time position in my field, and haven’t been doing much tea-infused baking lately.
Red Velvet Cake and Creme Caramel are two awesome teas! While I haven’t baked/cooked with either, a roommate of mine once used creme caramel in sugar cookies. While I wasn’t crazy about the texture of the rooibos in the dough, the flavour was really lovely. Were I to attempt the cookies myself, I’d probably infuse the butter with the tea leaves, strain it, and follow the recipe accordingly.
Basically any recipe that calls for butter can be altered to accomodate tea. There’s an awesome step-by-step guide here: http://www.cupcakeproject.com/2010/05/baking-with-tea-how-to-get-flavor-of.html
Best of luck with your baking! Let me know how it turns out!
