A perfect pairing with a cup of tea? A plain, yet deliciously light and airy madeira cake, with a slight vanilla flavour could be just the ticket for afternoon tea.
Set oven at 190°C.
Sieve together the plain flour, baking powder and salt.
Cream together the butter and sugar.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, adding a little flour with each.
Add the vanilla flavour.
Fold in the remainder of the flour alternately with the milk to produce a smooth, fairly soft batter.
Place in greased baking tin. Bake in a moderate oven for about 1 1/4 hours.
Cool on a wire rack.
