(SPOT.ph) An old-fashioned chocolate cake never goes out of style, but it's worth exploring the other ways you can interpret the said dessert. One home baker goes beyond the usual chocolate-on-chocolate affair, dressing it up with other flavors and elements—like Earl Grey tea, walnuts, and a kiss of lemon. This unique creation goes by the name the Earl Grey Midnight Cake (P895), and you can order it from online seller 22 Grams Pâtisserie!
The Earl Grey Midnight Cake is made with nine-hour cold-brew Earl Grey tea; chocolate from Davao, Batangas, and Agusan; caramel chocolate cremeux; tablea glaçage; roasted cacao nibs; salted walnut nougatine; and Benguet lemon curd. It sounds like a mouthful, but take a bite and you'll see how all the elements come together beautifully: the tea adds a bergamot-flavored depth to the chocolate, the caramel and walnuts reinforces the chocolate's richness, and the citrus contributes just enough brightness to the mix.
