About this recipe: An easy, dense vanilla cake that uses simple ingredients. For a really decadent version, use the seeds scraped from a vanilla pod instead of vanilla extract. Serve as is, or with fresh fruit and cream.


Serves: 8 

  • 300g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 200g salted butter, softened
  • 3 egg yolks
  • egg yolk for glazing

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder and sugar in a bowl. Add the vanilla and butter and knead for 5 minutes. Add the 3 egg yolks and knead again. The dough should no longer stick to your hands. Refrigerate for 3 hours.
  3. Press into a cake tin or pie dish. Brush with the egg yolk. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown.
