Tea Cake Recipe

Recipe By Slurrp

For those untouched by the phenomenon of tea cakes, they are sweet and soft cakes that are served with tea these days. However, tea cakes did not follow the same path when they were invented. The history of tea cakes dates back to the time of African-American slavery. These tea cakes were actually big-sized cookies that were served by the enslaved to their slave holders. It was only after the Civil War in the South that these African-Americans brought the sugar cookies with them. The kind of tea cakes that are relished by the English are quite different from the Americans since they are sweet and fruity buns. The Swedish simply refer to flat wheat breads for sandwiches as tea cakes. A tea cake in English cultures features during evening tea ceremonies in elite households where light yeast-based sweet buns containing dried fruit are toasted and buttered before serving. This recipe is easy to make at home.
