Irish Tea Cake

Jen Sobjack

Irish Tea Cake is a delicious St. Patrick's Day dessert. This light, airy and moist cake is just the right amount of sweet to be served with afternoon tea. But with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream and some fresh berries, it's really the perfect dessert to serve anytime.

Delicious Irish Tea Cake that is buttery, light, moist, and fluffy. It's great on its own or with a dusting of powdered sugar and fresh berries.

Beat the butter and sugar together at medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing for 20 seconds after each addition. Beat in the vanilla.


Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a medium bowl and add half to the butter mixture. Beat on low speed until the flour is almost fully incorporated. Mix in the buttermilk, followed by the remaining flour mixture, and beat on low until just combined. 


Spread the batter into a 9-inch round cake pan.


Bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes.


Serve with powdered sugar and fresh berries.
