Cinnamon Tea Cake
« on: April 09, 2012, 10:50:24 am »
This is my sons favourite cake for his lunchbox.  It's also a great cake to take along to morning teas.

Ingredients:
150g sugar
60g butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
150g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
80 ml milk

Topping
Melted butter
Tsp cinnamon
Tbs caster sugar

Method:
Preheat oven to 180C.

Add sugar to the TMX bowl and if needed grind it to caster sugar.

Insert the butterfly.  Add butter, egg and vanilla extract and cream for 5 mins / speed 4.

Add flour, baking powder and milk and mix for 10-15 secs / speed 5 (speed 4 if the butterfly is still in place) until it is all just combined (do not over mix).

Pour into a greased and lined round cake tin.

Bake for 30 mins.

Remove from oven and allow to cool in tin for about 5 mins.  Turn out onto cake rack.  Brush the top of the cake with melted butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar.

dede - instead of a round tin I put it into a loaf tin to get a bit higher cake. I think the recipe could be doubled to fill a round cake tin nicely. Smells great and the uncooked mixture tasted great. Thanks Tasty for the recipe.

Wonder - Made this in a loaf tin.I was a little worried because it didn't seem to rise that much but the texture was the best of any cake I've made in the TMX, it was very light and fluffy. Only a relatively small cake and after one piece ended up on the floor (accidently) and the kids had two pieces each it was all gone before it even had time to cool.  I was worried about beating the sugar, butter and egg for 5 mins so stopped at about 4 and it was perfect.

I really like tea cake. Live the cinnamon flavor ontop. Yum.
Will give this a go next time I make a cake. Thanks Snappy. :)

Thanks Snappy, I think that little miss fusspot may like this (she really isn't a sweet girl and sometimes likes to have a cake or biscuit but doesn't like any of them - go figure!!)

Gosh, I haven't made one of these for heaps of years - I think it was the only cake I could make when I couldn't cook very well.
Thanks Snappy.

I hadn't made one for a long time either but I loved them when I was younger.  I had to go back to mum's old handwritten recipe book to get the recipe for it.  You never see them around anymore but they are so simple and lovely.

This evokes some memories. I'll have to make one.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

This also reminds me of a cake my Mum used to make.  Do you think it would stand up to adding apple slices on top?

I don't know if it would Kezza as the mixture isn't that thick. But there is a apple tea cake recipe on the forum somewhere

Dede I'm glad the family liked it.  It's such a great old fashioned cake!  I'm going to try it your way in the loaf pan next time.

We used to make a packet cake as kids that was the same as this and eat it all while it was hot. Will have to try it on the weekend when we are all home.
