Eggless Fruit Cake
A soft and spicy fruit cake – minus the eggs.
- 1 cup sultanas
- 1 cup currants
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon mixed spice
- 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
- 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups plain flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
Place sultanas, currants, sugar, water, spices, bicarb soda and grated lemon peel in a saucepan and, stirring, bring to the boil. Boil for 3 minutes.
Take off heat and add the butter, chopped. Stir through as the butter melts.
Allow mixture to cool.
Add flour and baking powder and stir well.
Put mixture in a well-lined loaf pan and cook in a moderate oven for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until cooked.
When finished cooking, wrap cake (still in tin) in a clean tea towel and allow to cool.
