I am a tea drinker and always try to incorporate tea, either black or green, oolong is my favourite though, into my baked goods whenever possible. This overnight spelt loaf, lightly sweetened with coconut sugar, is soft and tender with a buttery crumble topping--perfect for breakfast or afternoon tea snack.

  • 250 g White spelt flour
  • 100 g Whole spelt flour
  • 1/2 tbsp Green tea powder
  • 2 tbsp Coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 3 g Dried yeast
  • 200 ml Liquid green tea, lukewarm
  • 1 Small egg
  • 50 g Butter, softened
  • 50 g White spelt flour
  • 30 g Coconut sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 40 g Unsalted butter, chopped
  1. Place all the dough ingredients in a mixer and mix everything until you have a smooth, stiff dough. Cover and leave it at room-temperature to rest for 2 hours.
  2. Gently knead down the dough and shape into a loaf to fit a standard-size loaf pan lined with baking paper. Cover and leave overnight to rise in the fridge.
  3. The loaf will have risen slightly after 8-10 hours. Take it out of the fridge and put it somewhere warm to carry on rising until it reaches the rim of the pan, 1 to 3 hours.
  4. Place all the streusel ingredients in a bowl and rub everything together until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Place the streusel on the top of bread.
  5. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Bake the loaf for about 40 minutes until nicely golden brown. Remove and cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before turn it out to cool completely.

I should give this a try! I also am a tea fan, and green tea is such a great flavor to add to our breads. Why not!!

I just want to remind you that you are the one who made me fall in love with baking! This Green tea loaf looks amazing :)

mjskit 13/10/18 05:48

I'm a tea drinker, but haven't really incorporated tea into my cooking much. I love what you've created here. Just a little bit of matcha goes a long way in flavor and with the tea as the bread's liquid, the flavor of tea is through and through. Lovely bread Angie!

Big Rigs 'n Lil' Cookies 14/10/18 20:54

This sounds lovely! I've never baked with tea, but I think I need to change that.

The-FoodTrotter 14/10/18 23:12

OMG I'm so much in love with your recipe, it looks both moist and crispy! I really like the idea of the green tea in a loaf, very creative :)

Sharon D. 21/10/18 15:23

What a beautiful loaf, Angie. The streusel on top is a nice touch.

great-secret-of-life 24/10/18 08:26

must try this.. I am big fan of Matcha

Choclette 31/10/18 17:47

I'm a tea drinker too and like oolong, though I have to say rooibos is my number one. This green tea bread looks perfect and would go wonderfully well with a nice cup of froothie matcha.
