This recipe is from the 1920's another one that was handed down to me. Great for afternoon tea with a spread of butter on each slice. Does not look like much but tastes great.

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 1 heaped tbs butter
  • 2/3 cup of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1 cup s/r flour


  1. Cream butter and sugar.
  2. add well beaten egg, vanilla,milk and flour
  3. Mix well then pour into greased tin. Better to use a sandwich loaf tin.
  4. Put in pre-heated very hot oven, then straight away lower to moderate. Bake for around 25minutes. I baked this in the Airfryer so the time was much shorter.
  5. When cooked but still hot, spread top with butter and you can also sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top. You can also add nothing but when cool just spread with butter and it tastes fantastic.
