Quick and easy egg-free tea cake topped with cinnamon sugar. Not too sweet and beautiful for morning or afternoon tea.
Just installed a new smeg oven and wanted this to be my first teacake to cook on it - 02 Jul 2016
Thanks, Indira! It seems I have tried a thousand egg-free cake recipes since my daughter developed a severe egg allergy. This is the first eggless cake recipe I'll keep. I've tried it twice so far. Best results were when I doubled the recipe and substituted 1 cup of flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt for each cup of self-rising flour. A double recipe fills my NordicWare mini-bundt muffin pan, plus a couple of small mini-bundts. The texture was more solid and consistent than recipes that use soy lecithin or potato starch/tapioca substitutes for egg. The cinnamon masks the baking powder flavor just fine. I'm going to try a chocolate version next. - 17 Oct 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
this is the most terrible thing i've ever baked!! it took me over 30 minutes and it was raw and doughy in the middle but crunchy on top. the flavor wasn't even that good. i dissapointed my whole family when i served it for breakfast and it was a mess. - 20 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
