Spoonful of Sugar Tea Cakes

Happy Easter! He is Risen! What a glorious time of year when we celebrate the risen Savior!

Tomorrow, we will consume our weight in sugar, with all the chocolate bunnies, the ham with it’s sugary glaze, baked beans, coconut cakes and handfuls of colorful jelly beans. Sometimes, (and this happens maybe once every 5 years) I even get on sugar overload. Randy loves these teacakes, because they are not real sweet…just like having a little spoonful of sugar to pop in your mouth. They can be decorated to look like any holiday, but are especially pretty on Easter dessert tables, with lightly colored colors of Easter. But perfect for your coffee time in the afternoon and because there is no coconut to add even more calories, you can even have a few more pieces….am I the only one that thinks like that?

1 cup butter, softened

2 cups sugar

3 cups all purpose flour

4 large eggs

2 teas vanilla (or 1 full teaspoon of almond extract, which is what I use as it makes me taste like wedding cake)2015-03-26 08.01.24

1 table baking powder

1/2 teas salt

1 cup whole milk

1/2 cup sour cream

Cream Cheese Frosting (if desired) or sprinkle cookies with colored sugar as your topping

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 13×9″ baking cake pan. and dust with flour.

In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar at medium speed with mixer until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.

In another medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat until well combined. Beat in sour cream. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan.
