Looking Glass Cake:


1 pound flour | ½ pound butter | 4 ounces currants | 4 ounces mixed peel | 3 ounces raisins | ½ pound castor sugar | 2 teaspoons baking powder | 3 eggs | 1 teaspoon mixed spice | milk
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
Beat eggs and whisk gradually into the creamed mixture.
Sift flour and baking powder and fold into the mixture by degrees.
Finally mix in fruit and spice.
The mixture should now be of such a consistency that it will drop easily from the spoon. Add milk only if necessary.
Turn into a cake tin approximately 7 ½ inches in diameter lined with greaseproof paper.
Bake for 2-3 hours in a slow oven at 300 degrees Fahrenheit, Gas Mark 2.
Test with a skewer to see if cooked. Insert it in the centre. If it comes out clean, the cake is ready to be placed on a wire rack to cool.
Cut it first and hand round afterwards.
