'Men only' Cake Class 63 & Pound Cake Class 64


Class 63 'Men Only' cake recipe to be posted soon



 225g soft margarine

225g light muscovado sugar

4 eggs

225g self-raising flour

225g raisins

225g sultanas

100g glace cherries, quartered

½ teaspoon mixed spice



1.            Pre-heat the oven to 150C/300F/Gar Mark 2. Lightly grease and line an 8in deep round cake tin with greased greaseproof paper.

2.            Measure all the ingredients into a large bowl and beat well together until thoroughly combined. Turn the mixture into the prepared tin and level the surface.

3.            Bake for 2-2 ¼ hours, covering the top with paper after a hour to prevent the cake becoming too brown. When cooked the cake should be firm to the touch, and a skewer inserted into the centre will come out clean.

4.            Leave the cake to cool in the tin for about 30 minutes, then turn out and leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
