Vegan MoFo Day 14 – Tea Cakes, anyone?

Make that Orange Raisin Tea Cakes, kids. Being a recipe tester for Ricki of Diet, Dessert and Dogs is one of the most fun “jobs” I’ve ever had in my entire life! She’s hip, she vegan, and her recipes somehow defy all scientific logic and allow for the creation of decadant “this is a treat” goodies with humble, healthy ingredients.

These Tea Cakes are moist, rich, delicious, and have this aeromatic Orangey-Raisin thing happening. M. Fish was napping his afternoon away when the aroma roused him from our room and drew him to the kitchen where he asked eyebrows raised, expectantly, “qu’est-ce que tu fais?” , “What ‘ca doin’?”

This was one of the fastest “baked goods” type recipes I have ever put together. These would be just the right thing for a last minute brunch or breakfast treat, or for to have with your quatre heures or afternoon tea. I drizzeled a little orange glaze on some, but kept some plain. These were all gobbled down in mere moments.

I already have these on my “to make” list for next weekend…a nice, fresh from the oven Saturday morning wake-up treat. Gives a girl something to look forward to!

  1. Those look redonculously good! Thanks for the lovely comment–it was my boyfriend who was mugged, actually, but he likes to keep a low profile on the blog so I didn’t mention it in the main post. He’s doing fine…just really banged up and trying to replace everything that was stolen. But I’m so glad he’s alive!!

  2. Wow, Shellyfish, merci mille fois for this amazing review! (And I’m mostly speechless at being called “hip”–and I only had to wait–what? several decades?–for someone to call me that!!) ;)

    Your glazed cakes look absolutely gorgeous. I think I need to adapt the recipe :)
