Baking this Yellow Sponge Cake with Earl Grey Pastry Cream was a bit of a stretch for me as a new recipe. New chocolate cake recipes I’ll try in a heartbeat unless there are weird ingredients required. When I think of sponge cakes I think of Twinkies. Nothing wrong with them, they’re just not my cup of tea. Speaking of cup of tea; I love to start my day with a hot cup of Earl Grey. But Earl Grey in a pastry cream? I guess if I can love milk chocolate lavender mousse Earl Grey pastry cream shouldn’t be a big deal.
I must say that this Super Dark Chocolate Cake with Milk Chocolate Lavender Mousse was one of the most unique cakes that I’ve made or tasted. It was almost a year ago that I came across this recipe.
