Cinnamon Afternoon Tea Cake

Here's a recipe from Stay at Home Mum, which is perfect for an afternoon tea (as the name suggests!)  It freezes well, so is a handy one to keep in the freezer.

1 tablespoon of butter
½ cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
½ cup milk
Few drops of vanilla essence
Pinch of salt
1 cup of plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon desiccated coconut
Butter to spread over the top of cake

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl, the beaten egg, milk, vanilla essence and pinch of salt, mix until all combined. Sift in flour and baking powder and mix well.

Pour batter into a round greased cake tin and cook in oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until the skewer comes out clean. Take out of oven and turn over, cover the top with butter. Combine ground cinnamon, sugar and coconut and sprinkle over mixture.
