Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Tea Cakes

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Tea Cakes were declared another big winner from our Christmas baking recipients. These Tea Cakes include a chocolate cake mix, cheesecake pudding mix and miniature chocolate chips. I iced them with a canned chocolate frosting and topped them with a candied cherry (since cherry and chocolate work so well together. Yes, they were fabulous.

We have had so much wonderful feedback from the Tea Cakes we delivered to about 150 people this year. Though we usually bake cookies and individually wrap them, this year we baked Tea Cakes instead. We baked them in batches so that we filled about 45-50 Christmas bags at a time (each with 6-8 Tea Cakes included). That meant we had to bake about 500 Tea Cakes in each of three batches. So I baked two days straight; John delivered over the next two days; then we restarted the process another two times.

Finally, I concluded by baking four different kinds of goodies for our gluten free friends and neighbors. Our gluten free friends were so overwhelmed that we would take time to bake things they could eat. They were so grateful. But in the end, we were totally worn out by the time all the baking was over and ready to retire from the kitchen for awhile. 🙂

I actually had to clean my whole house from top to bottom before we baked anything gluten free. John had used a sifter to flour all the Bundt pans so there was flour on practically every surface of our house! I don’t have a gluten free kitchen, but I wanted to make sure it was as clean as possible from regular flour.

In the end I baked 15 different kinds of Tea Cakes and four different gluten free treats. Those included Starbucks Copycat Lemon, Red Velvet, Pina Colada, Pumpkin Cranberry, Pumpkin Toffee, Cranberry Orange, Strawberry, Apricot, Gingerbread, Cherry Cheesecake and several others that will be published in the New Year. We are still having friends and neighbors tell us how delighted they were with all those goodies!

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Tea Cakes are actually one of the easier recipes since they start with a boxed cake mix and use canned frosting. And if you’re a chocolate lover, these Tea Cakes are sure to please. Enjoy them this holiday season.
