London Fog Tea CakeMakes one 9-inch square cake
Ingredients:For the cake:
3 Stash Earl Grey tea bags
3/4 cup boiling water
5 large eggs, divided into 5 egg yolks and 5 egg whites
1/2 cup granulated sugar, divided into 2 tablespoons and 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons portions
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/3 cup cake flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
For the Vanilla Whipped Cream Topping:
1 cup heavy whipping cream, cold
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
orange zest, to taste
Recipe:
For the cake:
Preheat oven to 325 (F). Prepare a 9-inch square pan by spraying with cooking spray and lining the bottom with parchment paper. Spray the parchment paper with cooking spray as well.
Steep 2 Earl Grey tea bags in 3/4 cup boiling water. Allow to cool to room temperature completely. Remove the bags, squeezing out as much liquid as possible before discarding.
In a large bowl, whisk together 5 large egg yolks and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar until thick and pale. Slowly drizzle in 1/3 cup vegetable oil and continue to whisk until completely incorporated. Pour in the cooled tea, tea leaves from the remaining bag of Earl Grey tea, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. Sprinkle 1 1/3 cup cake flour and 3/4 teaspoon baking powder over the mixture, before using a rubber spatula to fold in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. Do not over-mix.
Whisk the remaining 5 egg whites on medium-high speed until the eggs begin to foam, before thickening and stiffening. Once the egg whites have started to stiffen, add the remaining 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar slowly, one teaspoon at a time, while beating at medium-high speed. Continue beating until stiff, glossy and shiny peaks form - at this point, the mixture should have tripled in size. In this step, you’re basically making a stiff meringue. 
Once you’ve made a perfectly stiff meringue, use a rubber spatula to gently fold the egg whites into the flour mixture in thirds. Pour the batter into the pan and lightly tap it on your counter top one or two times to remove any errant air bubbles.
Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven or until the top of the cake bounces back when gently poked and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Transfer the cake to a wire rack and allow to cool completely in its pan.
For the Vanilla Whipped Cream Topping:
Combine 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract into a bowl. Whisk on medium-high speed until soft peaks form, before transferring to the top of the cake and sprinkling with orange zest. 
Enjoy!   High-res
