Preparation

Cake

  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Generously butter a 20-cm (8-inch) square baking dish.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the brown sugar, oil, cocoa powder, and vanilla with an electric mixer. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until the mixture is well blended. At low speed, add the milk alternately with the dry ingredients.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Cool completely in the pan. 


Tea-infused Ganache

  1. Place the chocolate in a bowl. Set aside. In a small saucepan, bring the cream and corn syrup to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and add the tea. Cover and let steep for 5 minutes. Strain through a sieve over the chocolate and let stand for 2 minutes.
  2. With a whisk, stir until the ganache is smooth. Add the butter and stir until smooth. Let cool and pour over the cooled cake in the pan.
