Apple Butter Tea Cake

In the past week, I’ve visited all three locations of Alice’s Tea Cup with friends. No matter what, it’s always the right time for tea and cake. This gorgeous weather puts me in the mood for iced tea, and it’s a lovely place to chat. It also means I’ve watched three friends munch on their delicious scones while I contemplated making my first attempt a gluten-free scone recipe! In the meantime, I’ve been experimenting with my tea cakes…

I got so much great feedback on the classic cinnamon tea cake recipe I shared last week, so I’m sending a little twist on it your way! This Apple Butter Tea Cake is very similar, but puts a little American-as-apple-pie twist on the taste. It’s still completely gluten-free and flavorful. Pair it with a mug of apple spice tea for the perfect brekkie to kick off your morning. It’s also great to have some apple slices on the side…I like Pink Lady for a sweet and tart complement, or Empire for a traditional bite.

Are you as apple-obsessed as me? What’s your favorite kind of apple?
