Constant Comment Tea Cake

If I got this recipe from here, and it's someone else's, I apologize - I can't remember! I'm making it for sale, and the 'little old ladies' are loving it for their tea parties!

Constant comment tea cake

1 9 round

cup milk 5 Constant comment tea bags cup butter 1 cup sugar

3 eggs 1 2/3 cups flour 2 tsp. baking powder

Preheat oven to 350; grease and flour a 9 inch round.

Combine milk and tea bags in a small saucepan. Heat over medium til bubbles form around the edge, stirring occasionally. Do not boil. remove from heat and let cool 15-20 minutes; remove tea bags, squeezing out liquid. Set aside.

Cream butter and sugar til smooth; add eggs and blend. Add cooled milk; whisk thoroughly. Add flour and baking powder, mix until a smooth batter forms.

Pour batter into pan; bake approximately 35 minutes, til center of cake springs back. Cool on wire rack before removing from pan. Dust top with powdered sugar.

Marmalady - This sounds so fabulously easy that I want to definitely make it. I've printed it out, but I have two questions for you. Can a square 8" pan be used? Do you know if it freezes well? Thanks.

I love Constant Comment. I'll bet this cake is so aromatic and spicy tasting!
I'll have to get some new baking powder...can't remember when I used it last. It's been SEVERAL years.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Cats, sure you could use an 8" square; it'll just be a little thicker, and you may have to bake it an extra 5 or so minutes - do the toothpick test!

Constance - we definitely have to get you baking more!
