Egg Free, Fat Free, Sugarless Cake Recipe- Family Favourites (vegan)

I’m gathering another recipe here for my children. This is a much -loved recipe I’ve made for open gardens, picnics and school cake sales. It is suitable for vegans, vegetarians and people who are allergic to eggs. It’s so simple to make and the kitchen smells delicious when it’s being cooked. Enjoy!


6oz brown SR flour ( if using plain flour, add 3 tsp baking powder)

2oz ground almonds (omit if allergic to nuts, and use ground oatmeal instead.)

2 tsp mixed spice

1lb mixed fruit

4 oz dates, finely chopped

4 oz apricots, finely chopped

Rind of 1 orange or lemon

1/2 pint water (you can use tea)

2 tbsp orange juice


Soak the dried fruit in the liquid overnight.

Add the dried ingredients and fold in.

Bake in a 2lb loaf tin for 1.5 hours at 160C. Cover the cake for the last half an hour to prevent the top burning.

Check with a knife to ensure the cake is cooked.

Enjoy 😊 x

    • Thank you Margarita. It’s raining again. But 8C so not too cold. Just back from the care home. My poor Mother in Law asked my husband who I was. So very sad. But we took Meg and she cheered everyone up. Much love. Keep warm and dry. Affectionate greetings from us all. Love karen xxx

      • Karen I am very sorry about your dear mother-in-law, but you know what that disease is like. At the bottom of her heart, where her illness cannot reach, she still loves you very much. It makes me very happy that Meg helps you so much and gives you so much joy: she is the partner you needed. I’m glad it doesn’t rain and we have the same temperature. Enjoy Sunday Take care Very affectionate greetings from Margarita xxx
