Ingredients

  • 125g margarine
  • 1 cup (160g) sultanas
  • 1 cup (150g) currants 
  • 2 cups (250g) self-raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup (150g) light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, at room temp
  • 1 cup (250ml) So Good Almond Coconut Milk Unsweetened
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • cinnamon dusting, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a 20cm round cake tin and line with baking paper.
  2. Melt the margarine in a saucepan and add the sultanas and currants. Allow to simmer together for 10 minutes, until the dried fruit has softened. 
  3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, spices and sugar. In a jug, mix together the egg with the almond & coconut milk. Gradually mix the egg/milk mix into the flour. Fold in the sultanas, currants and margarine mix. Lightly fold until all ingredients have just been combined. 
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and sprinkle with slivered almonds. Bake for about 35-40 minutes, or until firm to touch and a skewer withdraws clean when inserted in the centre. 
  5. Turn out on a rack to cool, then transfer to a plate and serve dusted with cinnamon.
