I'm on the lookout for cupcake recipes and while riffling through old cookbooks, found a recipe for tea cakes that looked promising...
Here is the recipe from the book and some photos of these cute cakes that go well with a bit of jam.
Stove / BBQ:
Pre heat to 215 degrees Celsius.
In the stove 12 patty cases in a metal muffin tray works.
in the BBQ place patty cases in a greased flexy tray on a lamington tray, preferably over the grill element so there's not too much metal touching metal. Do not use the burners directly und the tray.
Method: cream sugar and butter, add bashed up eggs then mix, add milk, then mix, mix flour and baking powder together, then sift into butter mixture, mix together. Add vanilla essence, put one tablespoon of mixture into each party case and bake in oven for 10 minutes.
