  • This will be perfect to put in my recipe book for that quick morning tea cake and not as rich as having cheesecake all the time. It’s simple but I bet it’s tasty

  • I recall this from my childhood… a simple tea cake. We made one in Home Economics. It seems we don’t make anything simple like this anymore.
