Chocolate Black Tea Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
Not the best and would not make again. It was very dry, and as I read before, tasted a lot like flour. I think if I made it again I could make it taste better but it would need too many modifications - I would probably sub the tea for the same amount of buttermilk which would give it a nice flavor and much needed moisture, for a better chocolate flavor I would add melted chocolate or as someone else did, chocolate chips. It didn't need near the amount of baking time it called for. I baked it for 50min and it could have even gone less. So in the long run with the amount of changes it would be an entirely different recipe.

these were wonderful but got four stars because they were a little too sweet for my taste. I would say unless you're eating them with tart fruit decrease sugar to 1 1/4. And I read in here someone said they don't keep to well overnight. This is true. They got pretty rubbery. Next time I think I will make a half batch so there won't be leftovers. very creamy though :)
