Raisins and Walnut Teacake

A teacake is basically a dense large cookie made with sugar, butter, eggs and flour. Dried fruits such as raisins and currants are typically added to the batter. Apparently different countries have their own version of teacakes. Here in the U.S. teacakes are somewhat like
a Southern specialty. Something grandma would make for her grand kids.

Raisins and Walnut Teacake

1 1/3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup almond flour (Bob’s Red Mill super fine)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 3/4 cup regular granulated sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter, 2 eggs, 1 tablespoon regular milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup (or more) golden raisins, 1/3 cup chopped walnuts or almonds
(Butter and eggs should be at room temperature for 2 hours. Makes 12 servings.)

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Cook time:  For cupcake pan, bake 23-25 minutes.

For 9 x 9-inch non stick pan, bake 35 minutes until golden brown.

In a bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, almond flour, salt, baking powder and raisins.

Grease cupcake pan or 9 x 9-inch nonstick baking pan with butter. In a large mixing bowl, beat together sugar and butter until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, keep mixing. Then add milk, lemon juice and vanilla extract, mix until creamy. Add flour mixture to the wet ingredients 1/2 at a time, mix until all combined. Pour the batter into the baking pan, spread evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle almond slices (or chopped walnuts) on top, slightly press down into the batter. For 9 x 9-inch pan, bake in the oven for about 35 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. For cupcake pan, bake 23-25 minutes.

Let it cool in the pan for a few minutes. Transfer to a metal rack and cool completely. Tea time!  Tips:  Optional to use almond and raisins. You can always use whatever you have:  cranberries, cherries, pecans, walnuts… etc.
