How to Make Homemade Tea Cakes

Tea time can be a great way to spend time with friends, family and loved ones. Adding tea cakes to the mix is a fantastic way to start a conversation and enjoy conversation over a bite of something sweet. Making homemade tea cakes is a great way to show your loved ones how much you care about them and adds a special touch to the tea time experience.


To make homemade tea cakes, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  • Preheat: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Mix dry ingredients: In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • Add wet ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, vanilla extract and melted butter. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Roll and cut: Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently roll it out until it is about ½ inch thick. Using a cookie cutter or glass, cut out circles from the dough and place them on a baking sheet.
  • Bake: Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden brown.
  • Cool & Serve: Let the tea cakes cool before serving. Enjoy with a cup of tea, or add your favorite icing or jam for a special treat.

These homemade tea cakes are a great way to treat your family and friends to something special at tea time. Spending time together with a warm cup of tea and a sweet treat can make any day more enjoyable.
