Tea Cakes are my all time favourite. Hearing this you must have assumed that I must have had this many times! Well quite opposite to it, I have never actually tasted those tea cakes you get in the bakery as its made with Eggs.
So if I have to eat a tea cake, then I got to bake it myself. There is only so many recipes I can have with Chocolate right, even though with the list of bookmarked chocolate recipes run a mile. Once in a while, I crave for something else and that’s when I decided I will do Tea Cakes.
As per my definition, Tea Cakes are those mildly sweet, spongy, a wee bit hard, and without any frosting. Its suits best as a snack to pack and good to serve as evening snack or pack in your kid’s snack box. So it’s more or less the same as a sponge cake.However, when it comes to an Eggless version, I hardly find much difference from the way I bake a Tea Cake or a Sponge Cake. Still, because I fancy that name, I will call it Tea Time Cake.
If you are wondering why I am talking so much about baking, it’s that time of the year where a group of blogging friends join together to a Bake-a-thon. The whole of December will be baked goodies. And it’s also something I so look forward.
As with every year, I picked up a theme for this edition as well. And you guessed it right, it’s going to be Tea Time Cakes.
First in the series is going to an Eggless Pineapple Tea Cake. I enjoyed the maximum digging into this cake and loved it so much!
When I had made Pineapple Upside down Cake couple of editions back, I have been thinking I must make a Tea Cake as well. It all turned out such a coincidence that I had Fresh Pineapple, Pineapple Jam and Essence as well on hand.
I baked this cake pretty much similar to my Apple Tea Cake. While this is the only cake that’s ready, I am hoping to bake more fresh fruit tea cakes.
