Vintage Apple and Cinnamon Tea Cake July 16, 2014 by Stacey 30 Comments cybele@blahblah says July 16, 2014 at 7:03 am This is my favourite type of cake and I’m so impressed you managed to deviate with a cake recipe. Maybe I’ve been cursed by a CWA lady in the past. I’m not sure about decorating with Angelica but my mum used to give it to us when we had colds x Reply Veggie Mama says July 16, 2014 at 12:23 pm Haha I’ve been tinkering with these recipes since I was 10 years old so I kind of know what works and what’s going to be an abysmal failure these days! Reply Jackie @ Hippie Mumma says July 16, 2014 at 8:41 am You are too funny Miss Stacey lol. I *think* angelica is a herb? Probably wrong but it sounds right at the moment! Reply Veggie Mama says July 16, 2014 at 12:21 pm Yeah not something I’ve got on hand regularly… Reply Elizabeth@thebackyardlemontree says July 16, 2014 at 9:45 am Good to know those old cake recipes work well as master recipes that you can adapt to what ever takes your fancy. Perfect cake baking weather at the moment too!! Reply Veggie Mama says July 16, 2014 at 12:21 pm Pretty much how I’ve ever baked any cake since the dawn of time! Reply Josephine says July 16, 2014 at 10:33 am Gee Stacey, not sure why one would deviate from the original recipe – what a winner! And can we take a moment to appreciate the name Wynwode? But seriously, a slice of your cake would go down a treat this minute, being morning tea time an all. Thanks for sharing! Reply Veggie Mama says July 16, 2014 at 12:20 pm I actually don’t know if it’s a man or a woman, or how to pronounce it. But, cake. Reply Lila Wolff says July 16, 2014 at 11:20 am Yum! Also look at your site all changed, wow! Reply Veggie Mama says July 16, 2014 at 12:20 pm Time for a changeup! Reply Trish says July 16, 2014 at 1:16 pm Mmm , sounds delicious.. Reply Engaging Women - Martine Harte says July 16, 2014 at 1:28 pm Had a dear elderly friend for years, Lorna who could tinker a recipe with the best of them. Reminds me of her kitchen in the afternoon. Yum. Reply Veggie Mama says July 17, 2014 at 8:49 pm Oh that sounds lovely! Reply Christie Connelly says July 16, 2014 at 1:30 pm I can smell that through the screen. Reply Veggie Mama says July 17, 2014 at 8:49 pm Just don’t smell too hard, you might inhale the icing sugar. it could just be me who does that. Reply cityhippyfarmgirl says July 16, 2014 at 1:39 pm Codfat and Angelica eh? Now there are two things you are probably not going to hear of much on Master Chef. (And non faffing cakes are the best kind…who needs extra faffing in life?) Reply Veggie Mama says July 17, 2014 at 8:50 pm I bet they bring back both next year like the bloody hipsters they are. Reply Shari says July 16, 2014 at 5:22 pm This was the wrong post for me to read whilst hungry…pregnancy cravings overload Reply Veggie Mama says July 17, 2014 at 8:50 pm Haha go bake a cake Reply Mandi Jones says July 17, 2014 at 12:36 am Non-faffing cakes are winners here too. And now I know what we’re having for morning tea tomorrow. Thank you very much! Reply Veggie Mama says July 17, 2014 at 8:50 pm I hope you liked it! Reply Lavendar Summers says July 17, 2014 at 10:31 pm Ummm…Yum Yum! They look so yummy! You know what? I LOVE food and things like that VERY much! The cakes makes me goes hungry every time when went through this blog XP Reply Veggie Mama says July 21, 2014 at 4:55 pm Ha I love food too. Reply Lavendar Summers says July 21, 2014 at 5:58 pm -high fife- XDD Reply The Plumbette says July 22, 2014 at 11:16 am I do this all the time, changing a recipe to suit what’s drooping in the fridge. With my tea cake I add extra apple to the top and a crumble which makes it delicious for a dessert with a dash of cream or custard or both! Reply Veggie Mama says July 23, 2014 at 11:36 am FAFFING.
