How to prepare lemon cake scented with bergamot tea

In a small saucepan heat water and insert a tablespoon of your favorite black tea leaves and let steep 5-10 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees F. In a bowl, pour the eggs, sugar, salt and beat them 5 minutes with a whisk.

Grate the lemon zest and add it to the mixture, then pour in the oil and tea, after passing it through a strainer, and continue to blend everything with the blender.

Finally, add the flour and the sifted baking powder. Pour everything into the buttered and floured mold and bake in the oven for 30 minutes (always check the cooking with a toothpick).

Meanwhile, make the syrup by putting the lemon juice and powdered sugar in a small saucepan and stir until all the sugar is completely dissolved.

As soon as the cake is ready take it out of the mold, pierce it with a skewer and pour the syrup on the cake and then leave it to cool completely and at will, when the cake is completely cold, sprinkle it with powdered sugar.
