Vinegar Cake Recipe

Vinegar is not the first people think of when using ingredients in a cake. However this vinegar cake is delicious, and so I urge you to try it. You won't be sorry. You can't taste the vinegar, rather it is used here purely as a raising agent.

12 oz self-raising flour
4 oz butter
8 oz mixed fruit
2 oz candied peel, cut fine
8 oz Demerara sugar
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
3 teaspoons vinegar
½ pint of milk

Method: Set oven to 350° F. Rub fat into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the rest of the dry ingredients except the bicarbonate of soda.

When well blended add the bicarbonate of soda mixed with the milk and the vinegar.

Put into a greased and lined 8½ inch cake tin and bake for approximately 1¾ - 2 hours.
