Southern Tea Cake Recipe
This is my favorite Southern Tea Cake recipe. I just want some people to know what a tea cake is!
Most tea cakes have a soft cookie like consistency. Tea cakes are typically toasted and buttered and served up with a nice cup of tea. Earl Grey is my favorite tea with Southern tea cakes.
