Afternoon Tea Cake

tea cake 5I was introduced to foreign desserts by my best friend’s mom. She is British and an excellent baker. I got hooked on everything English/British and specially the cake.

As for the cake, yes you can make it without the granola but you’ll be missing a lot, and I mean a lot!

Afternoon Tea Cake

Serves 10 – 12. 208 calories per serving (if serving 10)

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup chocolate decadence granola


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180C.
  • Grease and flour 8×8 baking pan, or line it with parchment paper.
  • Whisk flour with salt and baking powder, set aside.
  • In a bowl, beat butter with sugar until lighter in color and well combined.
  • Add in the first egg. Beat well after each addition of egg until creamy.
  • Add in vanilla and mix well.
  • Fold in the flour into the mixture and mix well.
  • Add the milk and mix gently.
  • Take 1/3 of the batter and mix with granola.
  • Spoon a dollop from the batter beside a dollop from the granola batter, creating kind of check board.
  • Use a butter knife and make three figure 8s. This will distribute the granola in a nice way.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the middle of the cake. Over baking this cake will make it dry, it’ll still taste good though.
  • Cool on cooling rack.





  1. Since it has GRANOLA in it, I am sure it would fit for a breakfast too. Looks scrumptious!

  2. Simple and nice cake! I would enjoy such cake for breakfast 😀

  3. Even if without the tea, I would definitely want to have a slice of this cake!
