    BecR's Note:

    While traditional afternoon tea is only a memory in most households, the tea cake deserves to be remembered. It's excellent served with tea, coffee, hot chocolate or milk. This version combines fragrant lemon peel, with generous wedges of Hawaiian fresh pineapple and buttery streusel crumbs. A light sprinkle of powdered sugar over the cooled cake adds a finishing touch. Serve warm for a special treat at any time of the day. From the newspaper.

      Tasty, refreshing cake using fresh pineapple. Made exactly as written using the butter option. The streusel would be good on top of muffin batter or apple crisp too. Served with a dollop of whipped cream and a tiny wedge of fresh pineapple (saved from cutting pineapple up) on top for a garnish. Great tea time or any time cake. Added to my favorites binder.
