A Cake Fit For a Tea Party—And Monday's Breakfast

October 21, 2016

Tra-la-la, it's The Fall Cookbook Cake Parade: a new cake from a new cookbook every single day. Are your costumes cake pans ready?

Today: a cake for teatime, from Butter Celebrates.

Rose Daykin, the author of Butter Celebrates and owner of Vancouver's Butter Baked Goods has a special spot in her heart for tea parties:

"When I think of my mum, I always think of tea parties. She loves them! But then, what’s not to love about a tea party? Little sandwiches, baby scones, maybe a sausage roll or two. Oh, and let’s not forget about the delicious cake. After all, that’s what this is all about.

Her Brown Butter Honey Tea Cake clearly isn't your ordinary tea cake; the nuttiness of the brown butter pairs up with the moody sweetness of the honey. It's a cake fit for tea time, but also tomorrow's breakfast.

Do you need to use pastry flour? Will cake flour work?

Hiya Food52 - The author of Butter Celebrates is actually Rosie Daykin, not Rose. Also, please include the "prepared pan" info for her Brown Butter Honey Tea Cake recipe, e.g. 1 (7-inch) springform pan, buttered and floured". Thanks!
