Almond Poppyseed Tea Cakes

Teresa Ambra

I hit a grand slam with this spectacular dessert. I had a neighbor who told me he thought the Almond Poppyseed Tea Cakes “were to die for!” Another really good friend said they were one of her favorites and still another just raved over them and wanted more! These lovely Tea Cakes started with one of my favorite Sour Cream Pound Cake recipes. But I amped up the flavors with extra almond flavoring and also added sliced almonds and poppyseeds. I had planned to make an almond glaze for the top, but was so tired I settled for using canned vanilla frosting instead. These were one of my favorite Tea Cakes, but seriously, I loved ALL of the ones I baked last December! 🙂

While I baked these lovely Tea Cakes for the Christmas holiday season, they’re really great anytime of the year. If you have a party or gathering where you need to bring a dessert, no one will be able to stay out of these miniature Bundt cakes. Especially if you/they enjoy almond-flavored desserts.

I got the idea from an Almond Poppyseed Muffin recipe I made back in August. But I wanted it lighter and fluffier and more cake like so I used the idea (and some of the ingredients) from the muffin recipe and combined it with a cake recipe and voila! The outcome was outrageously good!

We made over 1,000 Tea Cakes for the holidays. Those included Red Velvet, Pina Colada, Apricot, Strawberry, Gingerbread, Pumpkin Cranberry, Cherry Cheesecake, Starbucks Copycat Lemon, Cranberry Orange, Pumpkin Toffee, Chocolate Chip Cheesecake and Chocolate Butter Pecan. Without a doubt the Tea Cakes were a big hit this year. We have had so many people tell us how much they enjoyed the flavors that came in their goody bag.

If you need a delicious dessert and want to try Tea Cakes, I can’t recommend the Almond Poppyseed Tea Cakes enough. I purchased the 20-tin miniature Bundt pans (needed for this recipe) from Jo-Ann’s Fabric and Crafts. Enjoy.

Remove lid and foil liner from canned frosting. Microwave about 15-20 seconds in microwave. Drizzle icing over top of individual Tea Cakes. Place a candied cherry in the centers of each Tea Cake. Or, you can put the icing into a zip lock bag without the bottom. Snip off a corner and pipe frosting over top of individual Tea Cakes.
