Who doesn’t love a nice piece of Southern tea cake on a beautiful sunny day?
My Tea Cake Orange Glazed makes me want to put on my favorite dress, fancy pearls, and Sunday hat!
Yes, it’s a Southern thang.
Baby Girl said I need to make some cute little sandwiches and we need to have a tea party to go with this cake.
This is a really simple recipe, it’s just butter, sugar, eggs, and flour.
I also put lots of orange zest in the batter.
Mix the batter up, allow to chill, then dust those hands with powdered sugar and press batter into a greased springform pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until cake is cooked completely when tested with a skewer.
Allow cake to cool in pan for about 10 minutes, then take the sides off the pan and allow cake to cool about 30 minutes prior to glazing.
Pour glaze over cooled cake, allow to set up, then slice this baby up!
It’s ready to eat and a nice cup of hot tea, or sweet tea if you dare, is perfect for dipping this tasty cake in.
BTW, if orange is not your thing, then try my Lemon Tea Cakes!
