Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/ gas 3. Grease and line the base of two 20cm springform cake tins with baking parchment.

  • STEP 2

    Stir together the oil and sugar, add the eggs, flour, baking powder, spices and juices, and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon until pourable and reasonably runny. Gently fold in the fruit, then divide the batter evenly between the tins. Bake for 20-25 mins or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean, then leave to cool.

  • STEP 3

    When cool, remove from the tins and sandwich the cakes together with jam. Sieve some icing sugar on top to serve.
