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 – how easy is that?! I used a loaf tin to make this cake, however you could also use a small round cake tin or even turn it into cupcakes – you will just need to amend the baking time.
