Mom's Tea Cake

OMG!!! how time flies , it's been more than a month since I last posted . There is so much to do in so little time . I have neglected my blog for too long now but not anymore ( I hope ). This is something my mom used to make when we were little . It is just the most aromatic , fluffy , buttery cake . She used to  make it most of the time and the best part was the aroma that wafted around the house . Its got very few ingredients so here goes.........


200 gms butter  ( room temp )
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder


Cream the butter and sugar well till pale and fluffy .
Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat really well.
Sift the dry ingredients together and add itin two parts and mix well .
Bake in a medium loaf tin in a preheated 180 c oven for about 45 min or till a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean .
Cool out on a wire rack .
