Sultana Tea Cake

Method

In an electric mixer combine mashed sweet potato, sunflower oil, orange juice, eggs, caster sugar, vanilla essence & sultanas. Mix at a low speed for 1 – 2 minutes until all ingredients are well combined. Pre-mix wholemeal self-raising flour, bicarbonate soda, nutmeg, mixed spice, ginger & salt, then slowly add a little at a time whilst mixing until completely incorporated. Mix for a further 1 – 2 minutes at a low speed ensuring all ingredients are well combined.

Preheat the oven to 175°C.

Evenly distribute the batter into a non-stick lightly greased 7cm Deep, 10 x 20cm (base measurement) loaf tin. Bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Remove loaf from the baking pan and place on a wire cooling rack and cool. Slice into 10 x 2cm slices (approx.) and serve.
