Old fashioned Teacakes recipe||simple,sweet and spongy ||super easy recipe

I love to bake cakes of different varieties but my all time favourite is always a simple tea cake.

The best part is it tastes best when it is 1 or 2 days old. You can also use lemon or almond extract if you want to give it a fancy touch, other than vanilla.

Sometimes it looks like sugar cookies and sometimes it looks like scones,but mine is neither of those, its literally a teacake, what you want it to be.

This soft teacakes doesn’t require much introduction, so let’s jump into the recipe……

Type: Cake, snack

Preparation time: 5-10 minutes

Cooking time: 30-35minutes


  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 100 gm of melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk (room temperature)
  • 3 eggs


  • Preheat the oven to 360F
  • Whisk the sugar and egg together until creamy
  • Add 1/2 cup milk and keep on beating
  • Add the 100 gm of melted butter and vanilla essence
  • Sieve in the baking powder and the all purpose flour
  • Keep on beating until you get a 8 sign ripple without breaking
  • Pour in 2 loaf pans
  • Bake the cake for at least 30-35 minutes or until baked
  • Check the cake in between with the help of a skewer
  • After baking allow the cake to cool down
