Earl Grey Banana Bread


1/2 cup of water

4 Ahmad Tea Earl Grey teabags

3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar

1/2 cup unsalted butter

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 eggs

2 1/4 cup all purpose flour

3 very ripe bananas, mashed


1Preheat oven to 350 F

2Grease loaf pan and put aside

3In a small sauce pan bring the water to boil. Remove the pan from the heat, add the tea bags and allow to steep for 5 minutes.

4Discard the tea bags without squeezing them.

5To the warm tea (in the saucepan), add the brown sugar, white sugar, and the butter.

6Return the pan to the heat and simmer on medium low heat, until the butter and sugars have melted and a thick syrup has formed (about 5 minutes).

7Remove the pan from the heat, and pour the syrup into a heat proof bowl to cool. Allow to cool to room temperature.

8In a large bowl, whisk together the sour cream and baking soda. Allow to sit undisturbed for 5 minutes.

9Slowly stir the cooled tea syrup into the sour cream.

10Whisk in the eggs.

11Sift in the flour and fold gently to combine.

12Fold in the mashed bananas.

13Pour the batter evenly into the prepared pan.

14Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes (covering with foil halfway through) or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.

15Cool on a wire rack, in the pan, for 15 minutes.

16Carefully remove the bread from the pan and allow to cool the rest of the way before slicing.
