250 g flour
3 eggs
200 g sugar
130 ml tea
130 ml seeds oil
16 g baking powder
a pinch of salt
3-4 star anise pods
for the icing:
3-4 Tablespoon of tea
125 g powdered sugar


1.Prepare the tea: boil the water ( a little bit more of 130 ml, so you can use the remain for the icing), add the anise and infuse the tea.
2.Beat well the eggs with the sugar, until they'll be creamy and fluffy. Now drizzle in the the oil and the tea. Sift the flour with the baking powder and add it to the mix, stirring lightly from bottom to top. Pour the batter into the greased and floured pan and bake at 180°C for about 45 min.
3.While the cake is cooling down prepare the icing, mixing the powdered sugar with the tea, until it has the desired thickness. When the cake is cold decorate it with the icing and serve.

Soft, very light and incredibly scented…
