World’s Easiest Healthy Cake

26 Apr

This cake contains no eggs and no butter or oil – therefore I think it falls into the category of ‘healthy’. It takes about 10 minutes to prep with no mix-master required. It’s best eaten as the day it’s made as the lack of fat means it won’t keep that well. My Mum calls it ‘Ken the carpenter’s cake’ as the recipe came from a tradesman who was working at home. Mum is old school – she always plies any people working at her home with cups of tea and coffee, cake and slice. One of these tradesman was Ken – and spotting a keen cook – he shared this recipe with my Mum.

1 cup of sifted self raising flour
1 cup of mixed dried fruit
1 cup of caster sugar
1 cup of milk
1 cup of shredded coconut

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and placed into a greased and lined loaf tin. Bake at 180 degrees celsius (slightly lower if fan forced) for 50 – 60 minutes.
