Honey and cinnamon drizzled teacake

 
A Quintessential teatime treat. Drizzled with warm honey and cinnamon is so comforting and they take very little time to make.  Oh yes they disappeared to quick too!
 
 

You need –

  • All purpose flour – 1 cup
  • baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Unsalted butter – 60 grams, @room temperature
  • Caster sugar – 2/3 cup
  • Egg – 1, @room temperature
  • Milk – 1/3 cup
  • Vanilla essence – 1 teaspoon

For the drizzle –

  • Honey – 1/4 cup
  • Ground cinnamon – 1 teaspoon
  • butter – 2 teaspoons
 
 

How to –

Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease a 8 inch round cake tin and line the base with a baking sheet. Sift the flour, baking powder and set aside.
 
In a mixing bowl cream the butter, sugar, essence and egg with electric mixer till light and fluffy. (took me about 8-9 minutes). Now gradually add the flour alternating with milk. Mix well till everything is well combined. Make sure not to over beat.
 
 
 
Spread the mixture into the prepared cake till and bake for 25-30 minutes or till the toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the cake.
 
Turn the cake on to a wire rack.
 
To make the drizzle –
 
 
In a small sauce pan gently heat the honey, butter and cinnamon till the butter has melted stirring continuously. Turn of the heat.
 
Allow the honey to cool a bit. Drizzle over the warm cake and serve.

  1. yumm…it looks so soft … I would definitely need more than one piece at a time :)…I remember that cup…the other day when I walked into Starbucks, I pointed out that cup to my husband saying ” Its the same cup that Rekha's husband got for her”. He asked me “Who is Rekha?” and the conversation went that way…unfortunately he didn't get what I meant…u know what I mean right? 😛

    1. Hi Sarah I am so sorry to hear that the cake did not rise.quite unsure as to why because I have made it a couple of times and it’s turned up perfect. Over beating the batter can deflate the cake!
