Green Tea and Chocolate Chip Loaf

I don’t know what went on in my head when I contrived this idea – perhaps when I was sipping my green tea while eating a chocolate croissant thinking how great green tea and chocolate taste together.

This loaf (more like cake) was super moist, chocolatey, and complex with the subtle note of green tea.

What You’ll Need

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup brewed green tea (cooled to room temperature)
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (use only one cup for a less chocolatey loaf)
  • 1/4 tsp orange zest (optional)
  • 1 8×4 inch pan greased (to make it even easier to get the loaf out, line the bottom of the pan with a piece of parchment paper)
  • Directions
    1)Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
    2)In a medium-sized bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon.
    3) In another medium-sized bowl, beat eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla. Add green tea and orange zest and stir until well combined.
    4) Add chocolate chips and stir with a wooden spoon until incorporated in entire batter.
    5) Put batter in pan and bake for 45-60 minutes. The loaf is done when you can insert a toothpick in, and it comes out clean.

    I hope you enjoy this as much my parents and I did!

    Look at all the chocolate chips!

        Thank you! The green tea was very subtle but went well with the chocolate.
