South Carolina Sock It To Me Cake - Best Tea Cake Ever

You want a winning Tea Cake?  You like coffee cake in the morning?  It is time to throw out all your other recipes as this one is a winner for many generations.

I am continually surprised at the popularity of this cake.  A few coffee houses order this from me and it is one of the best sellers from my home.  Like the Banana Cake, it tastes even better the next day.  Enjoy!

1/4 c. butter
1 c. powdered sugar

Heat butter until melted. Stir in powdered sugar, vanilla and water. Stir all ingredients until smooth.

I usually double this struesel mix as I think it tastes better
