    I used chamomile tea. The directions talk about cherries but there aren't any in the ingredients...

    This is a really tasty, moist teacake: I caution you, though: do not use mint tea! I just threw in what was in my teapot (thought it was my nuttier blend, but it was green mint tea!) and this is not a good combination, as the mintiness transforms into a lovely Vicks/mentholated aroma. This is, obviously, totally my fault--follow the recipe! I used sweetened dried cranberries instead of raisins (HATE raisins!) and it came out really well. I will definitely try this again with the right tea ;) Thanks, swirlycinnacakes!!!
