Spiced Cake With Black Currant

0 comments

You can call it black currant cake or spiced cake, however, it is soft and fluffy fruitcake made with dried black currant, raisins and spiced perfectly with cinnamon and mixed herbs. This is an old English fruit cake called cornish black cake; some recipes may include dark molasses sugar to give the cake a richer colour. This easy fruit cake was usually served at weddings and other celebration. I call it the dried fruit cake because you can add to it any dry fruits you have in your pantry not only black currant and raisins.

How To Make This Spiced Cake With Black Currant

How to make the recipe

Whisking the wet ingredients: I always like to start by whisking the egg well using an electric whisk. After that, add the sugar and continue whisking.

Add the butter, whisk.

Now, adding the dry ingredients: Sift the flour, mixed herbs, ground cinnamon and baking powder over the egg mixture and whisk.

Adding the dry fruits and nuts: Add the raisin, black currant and almond then mix using a spatula or a whisk.

Preparing for baking: Grease a 22 cm baking dish (I used springform)well with butter. Then pour the batter in the baking dish.

Baking: Bake at 170 C for 45 minutes or until fully baked.

Let the cake cool down then sprinkle the powdered sugar over the top.
