Enjoy a North American treat with Amy Wilcock's simple recipe for home-made tray bakes, delicious with tea or coffee

2. Place the flour, sugar, butter, baking powder and vanilla extract in a food processor. Break in the eggs.

3. Blend until well-combined.

4. Pour the batter into a greased, lined cake tin and smooth the top with a palette knife.
