What do we have today for T. I had initially thought of doing a Tarte Strawberry or a strawberry tart bu then now its not the season of strawberries here anymore. Last weekend I went to the super-market and then the hyper market but no strawberry anywhere, so I had to change the plan and I am here sharing an equally indulgent recipe of Tea Cake!
Tea Cakes can be made in so many different ways. I like the ones which have nuts and spices. So I am sharing a recipe of Walnut & Date Tea Cake with Cinnamon twist…. Okay complicated name? It’s a simple tea cake which has walnut, dates and cinnamon. This one is my Mom –in-law’s recipe. She does some great baking. She is visiting us next week and I am sure we’ll have some great baking recipes once she is here.
All that you need
- Flour – 2 ½ cups + 1 tablespoon
- Sugar – 1 cup
- Butter – 1 cup
- Eggs – 2
- Baking powder – 1 teaspoon
- Walnut – ½ cup chopped
- Dry Dates – ¼ cup chopped
- Cinnamon – 1 stick powdered
- Vanilla Essence – 1 tablespoon
How to make it
Cream butter and sugar and eggs. Add vanilla extract.
In a small bowl take the chopped dry fruits and mix them with 1 tablespoon flour.
Tip: This will prevent them from sinking within the cake.
In another bowl combine flour, baking powder and ground cinnamon
Pour the wet ingredients in the flour mixture and mix until a smooth batter.
Add the dry fruits and mix well.
Rest this batter for 5 – 10 minutes
Pour the batter in a greased cake tin / baking dish and bake it in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees for 15 minutes.
