We had the awesome pleasure to be on DomesticDan’s Twitch stream last month and he had done his version of an Underdark & Chill bundt cake. It looked delicious so we wanted to give you our version. This is super simple, fairly quick, and has so much depth of flavour you’re going to love it. Of course, because this is a recipe blog we need to give you a lot of information you don’t want to know so that we get that sweet sweet SEO score. However, feel free to just skip ahead to the recipe.
Remember you can pick up Underdark & Chill from our store here.
One of the cool things you will be doing in this recipe is making a milk tea. It’s just heating up milk and infusing the tea much like you would do water. Sadly, milk is a lot more temperamental than water is, so you need to make sure you don’t scorch it or boil it. Slow and steady wins the race when it comes to infusing your tea into your milk. However, once you got the technique down, I honestly enjoy making my tea in milk. When you add milk to already infused tea it cuts the flavour, however, when you infuse them all together you get a delicious rich and creamy concoction that is truly a delight.
We decided to include caramel in this recipe because it adds a sweetness that I think the main cake alone lacks. Having the caramel topping also just looks beautiful, and makes great photos that convince you to read our blog post.
