  13. High -light for southern children, getting off the school bus and find a large plate of Tea Cakes. Some-time Mom would make a chocolate icing for the cakes. What memories. ( IT MUST HAVE BEEN AN ALABAMA THING. )

  15. They were used for banana puddings too..

  16. My Grandmother,Mary Lou Jetton,made tea cakes that I tried to reproduce for years without success.Later in my life I added nutmeg and it finally tasted right.

    Also,she made the best applesauce cake.I cannot make it because she dried her apples on a tin sheet in the sun covered with screen to keep bugs off.I do not know what kind of apples she dried.
    Get the recipes while you can is all I can say

  17. My neighbor growing up in Ellisville, Jones County, Mississippi in the 1940’s-50’s, Nolan Mayfield aka ‘Nolie’, made the best I’ve ever eaten. She may have had Alabama roots.
