Irish Tea Cake

Irish Tea Cake

This is the recipe we have chosen for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day desert. Some of the great things about this recipe is, most people will have everything in house to make this cake, it is very easy to make and it is delicious.

I have also made fresh fruit sauces to serve with it. Usually I just take some fresh berries and cook them down with a little sugar. Serve the berries over a pieces of cake with or without whipped topping.

Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Cook Time: 40 Minutes

Ready In: 1 Hour 30 Minutes

Servings: 10


1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup white sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar for dusting


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing until fully incorporated; stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the batter alternately with the milk. If the batter is too stiff, a tablespoon or two of milk may be added. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack, then turn out onto a serving plate. Dust with confectioners’ sugar right before serving.
