I made an Irish Tea Cake as a nod to the Irish today. We’re all Irish today right? 🙂  So, here’s a slice of Irish Tea Cake,

I’m having Chamomile tea with mine, what would you like?

Irish Tea Cake and TeaI used a recipe I found on allrecipes. com  It’s delicious and super simple to make. You probably have all the ingredients

in your pantry already!

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time 30 to 40 minutes

Ready in 1 hour 30 minutes

Servings: 10

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup white sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract- (I used Madagascar vanilla bean paste.)

1 3/4 all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk ( I used whole milk)

1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar for dusting

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round pan.

2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing until

fully incorporated; stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the batter alternately with the milk. If the batter is too stiff a tablespoon or two of milk may be added. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.

3. Bake for 30-35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Cool in pan on a wire rack, then turn out onto a serving plate. Dust with confectioner’s sugar right before serving.
