Sat­is­fy­ing al­ter­na­tive

While look­ing af­ter my two lit­tle boys re­cov­er­ing from chick­en­pox, we de­cided to make a cake. Hav­ing no eggs in the house and be­ing un­able to ven­ture out, we needed an egg­less cake. Luck­ily, my March 2018 is­sue of Land­Scape had ar­rived, and one of the recipes looked more than tempt­ing. Since we did not have suf­fi­cient raisins in the cup­board, we used a va­ri­ety of dried fruits, in­clud­ing apri­cots, dates, cran­ber­ries and chopped orange and lemon peel left over from the Christ­mas mince­meat recipe. We even sub­sti­tuted the tea bags for Earl Grey. The re­sult: a lovely moist, fruity cake. We ate it while it was still warm, with but­ter melt­ing down our fin­gers.
