1 cup butter, softened, 1-1/2 cups sugar, 3 large eggs, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, 3 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and nutmeg.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Let cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

For a sweeter tea cake, you can add 1/2 cup of powdered sugar to the batter. For a more flavorful tea cake, you can add 1 teaspoon of lemon extract to the batter.

You can also decorate your tea cakes with a dollop of whipped cream or a sprinkle of powder sugar.

For a fun and festive twist, try using a piping bag to frost your tea cakes with different colors of frosting.

Get creative and have fun with your tea cakes! Try adding different toppings, such as sprinkles, edible flowers, or nuts.
