This week’s trip down memory lane is a SUPER quick and easy orange and sultana cake. After a week of Liam deciding he doesn’t want to sleep in his big boy bed (in reality it’s still his cot, just with one side rail removed) and the subsequent crankiness and tantrums, I was after a recipe that wouldn’t take up too much time.
I find that most of the McAlpins cakes require creaming. This one is different, all the ingredients are just popped in together, mix, and you are all done. It certainly isn’t the best cake I’ve ever made. But for little time and ingredients it needs, it will do the job for a quick arvo tea.
1 heaped cup self raising flour
1 cup castor sugar
Juice & rind of 1 orange made up to 1/2 a cup by adding milk
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 cup sultanas
* Place all ingredients together in a bowl and mix for 3 minutes
* Pour into greased cake tin (I used a loaf tin) and bake in a moderate oven for 25 minutes
That is seriously all there is to it!!
