Morning Tea - Cinnamon Tea Cake


Is there anything better than the aroma of warm cinnamon? This is a simple cake - quick and easy to make, that tastes absolutely delicious!!

60g butter or margerine (softened)
1 teaspoon vanilla (extract)
150g caster sugar
1 egg
150g plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup milk

extra butter - melted
cinnamon sugar (made to the ratio of 1 teaspoon cinnamon to 1 tablespoon caster sugar - I always keep a jar in the cupboard!!)

preheat oven to 170c
grease 20cm round cake tin & line base with baking paper

beat together butter/marg, vanilla and sugar until light and fluffy. Ad egg and beat well. Add (sifted) flour & baking powder with the milk. stir.

put mixture into cake tin, and bake for approx 30 minutes. Turn out, and flip back over so the top is at the top!!  Brush the top of cake with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

enjoy while still warm, and remember the times when your Gran used to make a cake just like it.
