Hello, everyone! My day started with dropping the kids off at school, and then it was busy with driving around town running errands. What I wanted to do was come home and share with you this delicious Cinnamon Tea Cake.


This cake is perfect to make when you are having visitors over for afternoon tea.

      It was really nice eating it warm Lauren. Any cake disappears quickly when it’s served warm in our house x
