Cinnamon Teacake

It’s been a while since I did some baking. I have been a bit of a cripple and not able to walk on my foot for about a week, also trying not to eat so much stuff that makes my bum bigger. But that doesn’t mean I can’t bake for others and still and have a little taste myself.

I bought a couple of new cookbooks on the weekend and this recipe looked so easy to make with all staple ingredients I always have in the pantry.
I thought it was a little weird that there was no cinnamon throughout the cake and it was just sprinkled on top but I thought I’d follow it as per the instructions and see how it turned out.

I ended up doubling the mixture as my cake tin was a little bigger than the prescribed 20cm tin. I also didn’t need all the cinnamon it states to sprinkle over the top for a nice cinnamon flavour.

A really light cake, definitely perfect for an afternoon tea!

Cinnamon Teacake

60g butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup (150g) caster sugar
1 egg
1 cup (150g) self raising flour
1/3 cup (80ml) milk
10g butter, extra melted
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon caster sugar, extra

1. Preheat oven to 180°C / 160°C fan-forced. Grease and line a 20cm-round cake pan.

2. Beat butter, extract, sugar and eggs in a small bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in sifted flour and milk.

3. Spread mixture into pan: bake about 30 minutes. Stand cake in pan for 5 minutes before turning out.

4. Brush top of cake with melted butter; sprinkle with combined cinnamon and extra sugar.

Serve warm with whipped cream or butter if desired.
Serves 10.


Voila! Bon Appétit!

    Was it fine with just the cinnamon on the top?

    Hi Simon,
    It was lovely with the cinnamon on top. Definitely a cake that tastes better warm though. Not so nice cold and the next day.
