Tea cakes are a delightful tradition, although no one seems to agree on what they are. They range from sweet buns to breads to cakes. This particular tea cake adheres to the Oceania (Australia/NZ) tradition, and closer to a cake than anything else. It’s not overly sweet, and is perfect for a light snack to accompany an afternoon (or morning) coffee or tea break.
