When I was little my mum baked constantly. Maybe that’s why I now can’t walk past a baked good! Naturally we would bake with her. My favourite go to recipes were meringues, chocolate cake and this super simple Tea Cake which was a recipe passed down from Jose. Jose was a lovely lady that owned the farm my parents worked on when they were newlyweds. She was like a Nanna to us and trips to their potato and asparagus farm were always the best!

This cake is so simple and the perfect baked good to jazz up a cuppa with a girl friend or pop around to a new neighbour. We have new neighbours and I’m going to be the creepy lady that pops over with the cake!


4 oz of sugar

4oz of butter

1 egg

1 cup of self raising flour

1/2 cup of milk

Some sugar and cinnamon to sprinkle over the cake.


Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees.

Beat the sugar, butter and egg together.

Add the self-raising flour and milk beat until you have a smooth batter.

Pour batter into a greased cake tin.

Bake for 30mins or until a skewer comes out clean.

Whilst still hot cover in butter and sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon mix.

So try it out and tag me in your pictures, I’d love to see your baked goods creations.
