After eating my wonderful Smoked Chicken and Sausage Gumbo, I wanted to create a light “snack.”
I didn’t want anything overly sweet, but it needed to satisfy my taste buds.
My delicious Lemon Glazed Southern Tea Cakes are the perfect snack!
I love teacakes, and if you’re wondering where is the tea?
It’s not in this batter, but in the south teacakes are often served with a nice cup of tea.
Usually, southern sweet tea, but at my home I make a nice cup of warm green tea.
This is a really simple dessert.
After you mix the teacake batter, it will be really sticky.
Don’t worry, once we chill these babies, covered with some saran wrap, in the frig for about an hour, or overnight, the batter will be nice and pliable.
After about 1 hour, I rolled the dough out on a lightly floured surface.
I then used a medium size biscuit cutter to make these nice rounds.
Place teacakes on a lightly sprayed cookie sheet and don’t place too closely together because the batter will spread and we want perfect non-touching rounds.
I bake my teacakes at 350 degrees for about 7-10 minutes or until browned.
Don’t forget to let the teacakes rest on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes.
The lemon glaze is really simple, but delicious.
Lemon juice, zest, and confectioners sugar and about 1/2 teaspoonful of vanilla.
O.K. you can eat teacakes without glaze.
I love them both ways, but if you’re not big on glaze, these are perfectly delicious without glaze.
My teacakes have cooled and I just finished glazing them. They’re PERFECT!
Put on you’re favorite hat and your prettiest summer dress, and pour yourself a nice cup of warm tea, or sweet tea if you dare!
