Tennessee T-Cakes - The Ultimate Southern Confection9:16 am
It's hard to come by in these here parts, so when I find something authentic, I cling to it.
I had never heard of Tennessee T-Cakes before. What a story! Click here to read about the legend.
Now Frances Barkley, T-Cakes Founder, is keeping the tradition alive, using natural ingredients such as malted barley flour, folic acid, butter, whole eggs, pure cane sugar and pure vanilla. There are no preservatives, so they have a shelf life of approximately 3 weeks and at least 6 months in the freezer.
These powder-dusted treats (not quite a cake or a muffin) are incredibly addictive and like nothing else you've ever had before.
Tenneessee T-Cakes come in beautiful boxes or tins. Either way, I recommend getting at least one of each flavour - Original, Key Lime, Lemon, Chocolate Truffle, Raspberry or the Assorted box.
Once you have one, you're going to want a bunch more.
