Eggless Cakes

Light Dried Fruit Cakes

Sultana Special

Preheat the oven to 160C/325F/gas mark 3

Use a 15cm/6 inch round cake tin.

Grease and line the cake tin. Put the butter, flour, baking powder and cinnamon in a bowl and rub together until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add fruit and sugar and stir thoroughly. Make a well in the centre of the mixture. Mix the golden syrup and the milk and pour this into the centre. Gradually mix together, adding a bit more milk if necessary to attain a dropping consistency. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin and bake in the preset oven for 1 3/4 to 2 hours or until the cake is well risen and firm to touch. Remove from the oven and allow to stand for ten minutes. Turn out onto cooling rack.
