Madeira Cake

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.


  1. Set oven at 190°C.

  2. Sieve together the plain flour, baking powder and salt.

  3. Cream together the butter and sugar.

  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, adding a little flour with each.

  5. Add the vanilla flavour.

  6. Fold in the remainder of the flour alternately with the milk to produce a smooth, fairly soft batter.

  7. Place in greased baking tin. Bake in a moderate oven for about 1 1/4 hours.

  8. Cool on a wire rack.
