SOTB Teacakes

SOTB:  It's a great drink.  

But these delicate squares of sponge cake have all the flavor without the hangover.  Fiori di Sicilia and peach jelly flavor the cake, topped with peach/pomegranate glaze.  They are easy to make!  Try them and think about summer.

I have quite a bit of peach jelly on hand, which inspired this recipe:

  1. These photos are so beautiful! That shade of pink from the pomegranate juice is just perfect, too!

  2. Complimenti per questa ricetta e per il tuo blog. Ciao Daniela.

  3. Any chance you could add a "Print" button to your recipes that would strip out the formatting and pictures, so we could easily print out and take into the kitchen?

  4. Martina, I've just added a print button. Hope this helps! Sue
