A tea cake with a difference- Tuesday's in the kitchen

A couple of weeks ago Miss Three had a play date with Mr Darcy. Jacqui brought morning tea + spoilt us. We shared Lego, playdough and a crafty morning together.
 The cupcakes were incredible and lucky for me there were some leftover to be enjoyed with a pot of tea when Miss Three had her afternoon rest. 
I shamelessly asked for the recipe so I could share it here with you all as with berries in season it's the perfect opportunity to make them for our little people and indeed ourselves.
We went strawberry picking at Red Hill when we snuck away for a mini beachside holiday last week and I'm planning on making a batch using blueberries and strawberries in the recipe. 
I've made these into friands and madelines last week and they tasted great with our homegrown raspberries.

Raspberry Tea Cake

Prep time: 10 mins |
Cooking Time: 10-15 min for cupcakes, 30 min for cake

Jacqui made these into cupcakes but the same recipe applies. 
You could also throw in sultanas and cranberries for something different.

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup coconut
1 1/3 cup s.r. Flour
Small punnet of raspberries 
(or loganberries, blueberries, strawberries + blackberries)

how to make
  1. Set oven at 190 degrees
  2. Cream butter and sugar and mix in egg
  3. Mix through coconut
  4. Add milk and flour alternately, mixing lightly.
  5. Put a raspberry in the base of each muffin tray and then add remaining to the batter and mix very lightly.
  6. Place in pan and bake for about 10-15 mins for muffins or bake for about 30 mins for the cake.


And thanks Jacqui for sharing the recipe.
