Ingredients:
- Starry Mart Honey Citron Tea: 130g
- Unsalted Butter: 180g
- Eggs: 180g
- Icing Sugar: 60g
- Milk: 50g
- Corn Flour: 15g
- Cake Flour: 180g
- Baking Powder: 10g

 

Icing on Top:
- Icing Sugar: 120g
- Lemon Juice: 20g

 

Steps:

1. Preheat the Oven:
   Begin by preheating the oven to 180 degrees, setting the stage for the baking magic.

 

2. Softening the Butter:
   Allow the butter to reach room temperature until it can be gently pressed with your fingers – the perfect criterion for our cake, avoiding a liquid form.

 

3. Creating the Batter:
   Mix icing sugar into the softened butter using a spatula. With a cake mixer at high speed, gradually incorporate the eggs into the mix about 5-6 times.

 

4. Sifting and Combining:
   Sift all the dry powder ingredients and gently fold them into the batter using a spatula until a harmonious mixture is achieved.

 

5. Adding the Milk and Tea Infusion:
   Split the milk into two portions and add it to the batter. Introduce the star of our show – Starry Mart Honey Citron Tea, blending it in for that distinct flavor profile.

 

6. Baking the Beauty:
   Pour the batter into the loaf tin and cake mould, baking for an initial 18 minutes at 180°C. For a visually appealing touch, use a small knife to draw a line in the middle of the cake.

 

7. Final Baking Touch:
   Continue baking for an additional 40 minutes at 150°C until the cake reaches a perfect golden hue.

 

8. Preparing the Icing:
   While the cake cools, whip up a simple yet flavorful icing by combining icing sugar with fresh lemon juice. Ensure a smooth consistency without any granules.

 

9. Finishing Touch:
   Spread the icing generously over the top of the cake and add a touch of edible cake decorations for a festive flourish.
