Tuesday, May 02, 2006 Tea Time Recipes: Spice Tea Cake

I asked for tea time recipes and Jeannie has sent in all sorts of lovely ones to share with all of you! For now, here is a delicious Spice Cake recipe to start with...perfect with a strong cup of tea, if you ask me. (Interestingly, it has a strong cup of tea right in the batter too! I've never seen a recipe for cake with tea in it before...)

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
