My nan used to make this recipe for me when I was a little girl, and this recipe became very special to me and the rest of my family. I have adapted the original recipe to make it gluten free and it tastes just as delicious! Light and full of flavour, it is a simple, quick and easy recipe for all the family! Enjoy!


Gluten free self-raising flour blend 8oz / 170g (I am using Doves Farm)

Marg or butter 4oz / 115g

Caster sugar 4oz / 115g

a pinch of salt

1 egg

6 tablespoons of milk

1 large tablespoon of natural yoghurt

Dried mixed fruit 6oz / 170g


1. Put all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and beat either with a wooden spoon or an electric whisk for 1 minute. Add more milk if the mixture looks too thick.

2. Spoon out the mixture into a circular tin, approx 6 inch (15cm) across. Sprinkle the top with caster sugar for a delicious finish!

3. Bake for approx 1 hour at Gas Mark 4 / 160 °C
Best served still warm out the oven with a cup of tea. Enjoy!

I hope you love this cake as much as I do.
