Surprised to see a baked goodie here after so much rant about a diet?Worry not,you've come to the right place,lol.Thanks to all of you who sent me mails asking if I was ok,the diet part aside,I am doing great.But blog wise,I've been a bit off since I've been not cooking anything new and the least exciting.So I thought I should give a small treat to all of you and to myself for successfully[almost] going on with the diet and shaking off my weight here and there.
A tea-cake is called so because it is generally served with afternoon tea but can be applied loosely to any kind of cake that is sturdy enough to be picked up with the fingers.[source]
I've always been a tea-cake fan because it is the perfect answer for those cake-cravings sans the frosting.Though I've never actually baked a tea-cake per se,this and this are very similar to these.With the strong taste of butter and vanilla along with the melt in the mouth goodness and the crunch of nuts and chocolate chips in every bite this one's a winner for sure!!

You could also bake this in a square pan and cut the cake into small squares,choice is yours!!
*[I had some leftover batter and I baked it in small tart molds.]
