Hi all, I have recently purchased a Nordic Ware Platinum pan and it has 30 sections all with different designs. It says it is for tea cakes or candy. Being really new to baking I'm not sure what tea cakes are. Does anyone have a recipe? I would really appreciate any suggestions.
Tea Cakes pretty much classify as any cake that is in a small bite size portion! I'd say make up your fave cake recipe and make it up as Tea Cakes
I'm British and drink about a gallon of the stuff a day! Lol In posh places they have 'Afternoon Tea' which is tea and a mixture of small finger cakes or mini tarts, scones are a classic 'Tea Cake', so go with anything!
here is a recipe for southern american tea cakes
3 2/3 c cake flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 c butter
1 1/2 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
4 tsp milk
sift together flour baking powder and salt
cream butter and sugar well add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition,add vanilla then add flour 1/4 at a time alternateing with milk blend dough well
chill dough roll out 1/8 in thick and cut with scalloped cutter or press into tea cake/shortbread molds .
bake 8-11 min at 400*
Thanks Shola and Oliveoyle
