Batter

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250g sultanas
20g rum
150g unsalted butter, softened
150g icing sugar
3 eggs
180g plain flour
4g baking powder
30g ground almonds

Method

  1. Making the batter

    Combine the sultanas and rum in a bowl and set aside. Combine the butter and icing sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring after each addition until well incorporated. Heat the mixture a little if necessary to obtain a good emulsion. Sift in the flour and baking powder and add the ground almonds. Add the rumsoaked sultanas without draining them and mix well.
  2. Baking

    Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Lightly grease and line two loaf (bar) tins with baking paper. Pour the batter into the tins and bake for 5 minutes. Remove the cakes from the oven and make an incision in the tops using a knife. Reduce the oven temperature to 155ºC and return the cakes to the oven to cook for about 40 minutes, or until the blade of a knife comes out clean when inserted into the centre of the cakes. Remove from the oven, turn out the cakes and allow to cool.
