Easy Sultana Cake

    55 minutes

    Easy to make sultana cake. This recipe is a bit lighter on the butter than most and although it contains sugar, most of the sweetness comes from the sultanas so this will satisfy those who prefer something a bit less sweet.

    2. Combine and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and continue to beat until creamy.
    3. Add 1/2 cup milk and 1 cup of flour, and gently stir to combine. Continue to add milk and flour until all is incorporated in the mixture.

    Other ideas

    This recipe also works well as a general base recipe. I have used it to make items such as fruit muffins and jam fairy cakes (the latter using a mince pie tray). One can also use it as a base for a chocolate cake by removing 3-4 tbsp of flour and substituting with cocoa.

    Very nice and easy. The recipe is poorly written though. Step 2 doesn't say what to combine with the sugar, obviously the butter. And it calls for vanilla which is not on the ingredient list. Nowhere does it say to add the sultanas.  -  26 Jan 2014
