Directions
9 STEPS
1
Preheat the oven to 340°F (170°C). Lightly grease a cake pan and line it with parchment paper. Allow the butter and eggs to reach room temperature.
2
In a medium bowl, whisk together the self-raising flour, baking powder, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon. Set aside.
3
In a separate small bowl, lightly whisk the eggs and milk.
4
In a large mixing bowl, cream the softened butter and granulated sugar with a mixer until pale in color, light, and fluffy, approximately 5-7 minutes.
5
Pour the egg and milk mixture into the creamed butter and sugar; mix with a mixer for 1-2 minutes.
6
Gently fold in the flour mixture with a spatula until combined. Use the electric mixer to whisk for a few seconds, ensuring a smooth batter.
7
Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
8
Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 3 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
9
Mix 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of powdered sugar together, and then dust it on top of the cake. Serve and enjoy your delicious cinnamon tea cake!
