DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Butter a 6-cup loaf pan and line it with waxed or parchment paper.
  • Sift together the baking powder, baking soda, salt, flour, five-spice mixture, and ginger.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the tea and applesauce.
  • In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the eggs and sugar until very light and fluffy.
  • With the mixer running at medium speed, drizzle in the oil and mix.
  • Add 1/3 of the dry ingredients and 1/3 of the tea-applesauce mixture and mix.
  • Repeat twice more, using up all of the ingredients.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake until firm to the touch and split on the top, and a toothpick inserted comes out clean, 70 to 90 minutes.
  • Set the pan on a wire rack and let cool 30 minutes, then turn out onto the rack, peel off the paper, and let cool.
