Indulge in the delightful flavors of this homemade tea cake that’s perfect for your tea time. Plus, we’ve included some handy tips and tricks!

  • 100 grams unsalted butter
  • 30 grams sugar (light brown sugar)
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 200 grams pancake mix
  • 2 bananas


  1. Preheat your oven to the desired baking temperature (usually around 180°C or 350°F). Grease and flour a cake tin or line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine 100 grams of unsalted butter and 30 grams of sugar (light brown sugar). Cream the butter and sugar together until the mixture becomes light and fluffy.
  3. Gradually add 2 beaten eggs to the butter-sugar mixture. Mix well after each addition to ensure it’s well incorporated.
  4. Sift 200 grams of pancake mix into the wet ingredients. Fold the pancake mix into the batter until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can make the cake tough.
  5. Mash 2 ripe bananas and fold them into the cake batter. The mashed bananas will add a lovely flavor and moisture to your tea cake.
  6. Pour the prepared cake batter into the greased and floured cake tin.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for the recommended time or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Baking time may vary depending on your oven and the size of your cake tin, but it’s typically around 30-40 minutes.
  8. Once done, remove the tea cake from the oven and let it cool in the tin for a few minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
