This is a really simple fruit cake recipe. It would be great to bake as a christmas cake. Or you could adapt it and swap the currents for chocolate and turn it into a chocolate cake. Or you could swap the currents for marmalade and turn it into a zesty orange marmalade cake.

You will need:

8oz of self raising flour

2 eggs

1/2 tsp of mix ground spices (optional)

1 tbsp of treacle

4 oz of margarine

4 oz Sugar

6 oz of currents

Method:

Put the flour spices and currents into a bowl and mix together. In another bowl cream together the margarine and sugar, then beat the two eggs together and put in the milk. Put this into the bowl with the margarine, mix together and add treacle. Pour flour mix into the cream, mix gradually, when all is mixed together put in a cake tin and bake on the middle shelf of a moderate oven form approx 45 mins.

Happy baking :-)

      Thanks everyone. I was looking at what people in america use for treacle because somebody else said they didn't have treacle but they wanted to do my gingerbread recipe. I looked it up and it says that molasses is pretty much similar to treacle. So that should be fine Kat :-)

      This sounds so yummy & I want to try it, but I have no idea where to get treacle! Can I use Molasses instead?

      Now this is a fruit cake I can enjoy! My father-in-law loves this type of "fluffy" dessert, can't really taste the harder, dense versions. This is just in time for the holiday baking season. Thanks for sharing. Voted up.
