When I first heard of teacakes, being a huge.... and I really mean HUGE fan of good tea, I knew right off it was something that I needed to.... had to make. At first I thought that the dried apricots would make them dry.. but no!!! These were amazing.... and it was the first thing that I made Helen's site: Tartellete. This lady is amazing. She not only has good recipes but her pictures are AMAZING..... Check her blog out sometime. Anyways, go make yourself a pot, yes, an entire pot of tea because you will need lots of tea to have with these TEACAKES.

Adapted from Helen @ Tartellete

Although the recipe says they make 12, I chose to make only 9 as I felt that any more would have been too thin....

This is what you'll need:

1/3 cup sugar
2 large eggs
4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup dried apricot halves, diced

1. Preheat oven to 350F

2. In the stand of an electric mixer or hand-held mixer whip together the sugar and the eggs about 4 minutes or until lemon-colored.

3. Add the sour cream and the melted and cooled butter, mix well at medium speed

4. Add the flour and mix just until incorporated.

5. Add the diced dried apricots and mix until incorporated.

6. Fill between 8-10 "muffin spots" in the greased muffin pan depending on how think or thin you would like your teacakes.

7. Bake at 350F for 20-22 minutes.

8. Let cool for 5-10 minutes and take out with the help of a fork. (I had to insert the fork around the sides first to let loose.)

...... and of course since these are TEACAKES ....
make yourself some GOOD tea or coffee and enjoy!!!

... and that bitten one.... yeah my husband just said he couldn't resist. Now, that was one huge compliment. :)


  1. Wow... these look great. Glad I found your blog.

  2. I can't wait to make these for bible study tonight. Thy look delicious:)

  3. K.. I made to portions i think i eat one myself... these were way too good...

  4. Hi Alla, i love your site!!! I made apricot teacakes this weekend, they were sooo good and plus very easy to make. Thank you :)

  5. Hey Girls!!! I am glad you all liked them. We loved them too b/c they are not too sweet and moist. I also tried them with craisins and fresh blueberries. The nice thing is you can put anything you want in them.... Also, maybe next time I will make like a sugary glaze and just drizzle on top.

  6. Hi!
    Don't you put some backing powder or backing soda here?

  7. Thanks, Alla! I will try to make it. :) Оля Ч.
