These tea cakes are perfectly bite-size… so you don’t feel like a pig when eating them… even if you have 10. … or 20 (oops…). I would highly recommend investing in one of these silicon cupcake trays  for this size of cake-. It just makes it a lot easier to bake them and to get them out than with a metal tray – especially as you don’t use cupcake cases here.

Ingredients:

Sponge:

110g butter
110g caster sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
110g self-raising flour
1-2 tbsp milk
60g flaked almonds

40g cocoa powder

Method:

Preheat the oven to 175°C

Mix together the butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, flour, milk and flaked almonds together with a hand mixer.

Remove half the mixture and place in a separate bowl – add the cocoa powder to this bowl.

(If using a metal cupcake tin, grease with butter) Add half plain mix and half cocoa mix into each hole until it is half full.

Use a teaspon to swirl two mixes into eachother to give a marble effect.

Sprink the rest of the almond on each cake.

Bake for 10 minutes (or until a skewer comes out clean)

Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions!
