My family has been so blessed that our elders live into their eighties, nineties and beyond. My grandfather lived to be 102!
Tea Cakes were one of his favorite desserts. So when we celebrated his 100th Birthday we had tea cakes for sure. I love making this recipe because it always makes me feel closer to him.
I also love it because it is full of flavor. The milk powder is toasted and so it gives a caramel like flavor from the sugars in the milk. I make them in a small batch so we end up with 9-12 little cakes. It is the perfect compliment to the end of a meal without being too much.
I like to keep them on the counter on a covered cake plate. They don’t last long but a few days is okay with me. I hope you enjoy the recipe and it gives you all the feels too.
