How to Make Tender Irish Tea Cake / Lemon Glazed

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degree F.

    Spray the bottom of a 9 inch bread pan with non stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla together on medium speed with a mixer.
  3. Add eggs one at a time making sure that each is completely incorporated before adding the next.
  4. Mix in the cream cheese until well blended.
  5. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  6. Take 1/4 cup of the flour mixture and mix in with the raisins to completely coat them.
  7. Add a small amount of the flour mixture into the batter and alternate with the buttermilk until both are incorporated.
  8. Mix the raisins into the batter with a spatula.
  9. Pour the batter into the sprayed bread pan and place into the preheated oven.

    Bake between 1 hour 10 minutes - 1 hour 30 minutes, depending how fast your oven bakes. Mine was done in 1 hour 10 minutes. Or until, pick comes out clean.
  10. While the cake is baking, combine the lemon juice with the powdered sugar to make a glaze.
  11. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to rest for 10 minutes.
    Then remove the cake from the pan and transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  12. When the cake is still warm, glaze the top with the lemon juice glaze and allow it to cool.
