Cranberry Tea Cakes For Home or On-The-Go

Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.
 
 
I have been traveling for work a lot these last two months and can say that my eating habits have started to suffer because of it. I'm used to cooking most of my own meals, so 3 days a week of dining out, while fun at first, is starting to take a toll on my body. When I got home last Sunday, I started looking for good options that I could take with me while on-the-go. I came across these Cranberry Tea Cakes on Golden Blossom Honey and knew that they would be a great snack for long car rides or to keep in an air-tight container for breakfast at the hotel. Because let's face it, most hotel breakfasts suck. 
 
 
These tea cakes are perfect to have on hand for breakfast at home or for snacking while out and about. You all know that I love my tea, and these little cakes pair so well with my hot cup of morning tea. But even if you aren't a tea drinker, that's okay because they are fantastic all on their own. As a food blogger, my family knows not to touch anything that I've made until photos have been snapped. Well, Jason came in with a cranberry tea cake hanging from his mouth asking if it was safe to eat yet. A little late at that point, but even he couldn't resist. Then, after getting a scolding, I had to hear all day, "Have you taken your pics yet?" over and over again because he couldn't wait to help himself to more. So, it looks like I'll have to make double batches for every one of my trips. One for me and another for the husband. Thankfully, he won't have to wait next time for pics to be done before digging in.

Ingredients

2 1/4 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup milk
3 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
3/4 cup dried cranberries

  1. I always buy a case of bottled water after landing from a flight because I’m always concerned about dehydration, which cause headaches (and apparently, kidney stones). I also pack nut mixes for a protein boost.

    1. Jason does that too. We usually rent a bigger car so he can stock up on several cases of water. I like the idea of packing mixed nuts for protein. I usually do granola bars, but I think nuts would be a better option.

  2. Those fresh cranberries look really lovely, what do they taste like? Are they fragrant, flavourful and sweet like blueberries?
    I usually do not eat while travelling, I will bring only some wholewheat cookies with nuts to keep me alive and some mints as they trick your brain into thinking it is not thirsty. That way you will not have the headaches that Bijoux mentions above.

    1. Cranberries are very bitter on their own. I think they are usually only good when mixed with something sweeter, like orange juice or boiled down with sugar.

      I do take mint gum with me because it helps curb my headaches. Peppermint oil too. I'll rub that into my temples when I feel the hint of a headache coming on and it tends to curb them if I get to it early enough.

  3. Before the pandemic, I was constantly traveling for work. Planes and hotels were the norm for me. Not only did I gain weight and feel sluggish, but my skin suffered too! I'd get dry, flaky skin with these GIGANTIC pimples like I was going through puberty again. Like you, I started to bright stuff with me when possible and try to force myself to stay hydrated. Also, staying away from fried foods was a must.

    When driving, I always packed a 1/2 gallon of almond milk with me, a few bags of chamomile tea, and a box of whole grain cheerios.

    1. Not a new job, but I am traveling the Midwest right now hitting up the craft fairs in addition to selling local and running my Etsy shop. It's exhausting, but we need the money right now so a girl has to do what she had to do LOL.

      Indeed, he should know, but sometimes you men just never learn ;)

      I hear you on the crappy body. If I weren't in remission right now, I would not be able to travel like I have been.
