About this recipe:
Freezer broke down and I had to use up my stored elderberries. I decided to make this cake with it. My family enjoyed it but I was unsure.
Makes: 1 cake
340g (12 oz) elderberries, defrosted if frozen
110g (4 oz) butter or margarine, melted
175g (6 oz) sugar
2 eggs, beaten
175g (6 oz) self raising flour
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- Turn the oven on to 170 C / Gas 3.
- Using a sieve, squash the elderberries and remove the pips, stalks, etc. so only the pulp should be used, otherwise the cake will not have a smooth texture
- Combine the elderberry pulp with the remaining ingredients. Mix until smooth and admire the colour. Tip into a greased or lined cake tin.
- Bake in the oven for 1 hour, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Remove from tin and allow to cool completely on a baking rack.
My family said it tasted better the next day, I was still unsure.
