Tea Cake

January 26, 2010


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 and 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream the butter, sugar and eggs together until well mixed.  Next add in the vanilla and incorporate well.  Add flour, baking powder and salt and again, mix well.  Place on a greased cookie pan and spread until the top is even.  Sprinkle with more sugar and bake at 350 degree (F) for 10-12 minutes.

To finish off the cake well, turn on the broiler and cook until the top is nicely browned.

Best when eaten warm; but can be reheated in the microwave by wrapping a few slices in a damp paper towel for 15-20 seconds.
