Irish Tea Cake

| March 18, 2006 | 0 Comments

So yesterday was that day. The day that we Americans pay homage to Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, by eating corned beef and cabbage and drinking beer. I skipped the beer for a second year though (last year I was pregnant). I just didn’t feel like it.

In any case, my mother made the dinner. But I couldn’t just let the meal go by without a Cucina Bella creation so I hunted around and found a super easy recipe for an Irish tea cake on Allrecipes. I’ve never had a tea cake before, to my knowledge so this was a leap of faith for me.

As it turns out, it was a FANTASTIC leap of faith – the tea cake was crusty on the outside and moist and soft on the inside. My sister and mother both had seconds. Yay!

I definitely suggest trying this great cake sometime.
