About this recipe: This moist fruit cake is vegan-friendly and super-easy to make. To ensure that the cake is vegan, use a dairy-free margarine. Enjoy thickly sliced for afternoon tea.
I've yet to make this cake but without wanting to sound rude to Miss Bungle.... but if you actually read the first introduction to this recipe...Lynn the lady who gave this to us, strictly says to exchange the margarine for a dairy free based margarine instead to ensure that it is vegan. People should only criticize when you are absolutely sure that the recipe deserves it and i don't agree that this does. Lynn covered herself by making a point of exchanging the margarine at the begining - 18 May 2014
Fantastic cake. I baked this as one of my co-workers can't eat eggs and I didn't want him to miss out on my birthday cakes! It initially looked sloppy, but baked perfectly. I dropped the cloves and allspice and replaced with 1tsp ginger - it came out almost like a certain Jamaica Ginger Cake that's available in the UK... Only one problem. It's dangerously moreish and even if it gets dry from being left (unlikely, with how fast it went in the office) it would be fantastic with some custard over it! - 24 May 2013
I've not made this but it is not a vegan-friendly cake if you are using margarine - it contains buttermilk. - 15 Sep 2013
