Cooking with Tea

So I apparently like to cook with tea. Who knew? Not me. But I do. I really, really do. I love to drink tea, so really it’s the only natural next step to make.

I had a whole bunch of bananas that went brown pretty quickly, and a jar of cranberries my sister had boiled down for special drinks over the last holiday. I thought about making banana bread, which I like to drink with tea. I thought “why not combine all of these ingredients?” So I did. And this recipe was born. And it was marvelous.

So here it is, another tea recipe, Banana bread with cranberries and english breakfast tea. What a mouthful. I’ll just call it Delightful Breakfast Bread.

This is what you’ll need;

Take my sister’s guest recipe on Banana Bread

1 cup of fresh or lightly cooked cranberries (really, they can be uncooked, just wash them of course) if you do not cook them, the bread will have a slightly tangy flavor.

1 bag of english tea. Just tear it open and pour it right into the batter

1/4 tea ground cardamom

Bake per the instructions in the guest post and you are good to go.

adding the cranberries to the wet mixture

Delightful Breakfast Bread

That’s it! I omitted nuts as I didn’t have any. It was delicious, beautiful and fantastic with…coffee (and tea I’m sure).
