According to culinary historians, the American tea cake was created over 200 years ago by African slaves in the southeastern United States. Following emancipation, tea cakes became a staple of southern heritage. Today, tea cake recipes remain treasured pieces of black American family histories, and these cookies with a cake-like consistency are a traditional treat.
