Recipe tips
  • You could easily make this cake with gluten-free flour, but you may need to add an extra 50ml liquid, depending on the type of flour you choose.
  • Any dried fruits work well – prunes, apricots, currants or mixed fruit.
  • Once cooked, you can drizzle with 1 tsp runny honey, if preferred.
