Christmas Cake

I was really pleased with the way the Christmas cakes turned out this year. I split the mixture into 2 smaller tins and baked it for an hour less and they turned out great ! This is the recipe.

12oz plain flour
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp mixed spice
1 1/2 oz oil
8oz soft brown sugar
8oz sultanas
6oz currants
5oz raisins
1oz candied peel
2oz cherries
finely grated rind of a lemon
1/2 pint rice milk
1 tbsp baking powder

Mix all the ingredients together and split between 2 greased 8 inch tins. Bake for 1 hour at 180C then lower the oven to 160C for a further half an hour, Check to see if the cakes are cooked and then cool until completely cold.
