Orange Blueberry Tea Cake


This not too sweet  tea cake is complimented with a crispy, sweet fruity crust and it tastes wonderful when served warm.  Heat up any leftovers if any,  to regain the warm and crispy crust.  Great for breakfast or something to snack on!  It may taste better with fresh blueberries.

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕
