Light in Flavour

When you want a delicate sweetness in your baking, using White Sugar or Caster Sugar can provide a subtle sweetness that enhances the other flavours without overpowering them.

Fruity

Using fruit can add a natural, fruity sweetness to baking, creating a refreshing, light flavour or adding sweet tartness. White Sugar or Caster Sugar in baking, allows the flavour of the fruit to shine and Jam Setting Sugar preserves the taste of fruit in vibrant jams.

Nutty

Coconut Sugar bring a subtle nuttiness to baked goods, elevating the taste with a mild, natural sweetness and pairs beautifully with tropical flavours.

Spiced

Using sugars with spices like cinnamon, ginger, licorice or chai can lend a warm, aromatic sweetness to baking.

Caramel

Utilising brown sugars or incorporating caramelised sugar syrups creates a richer, deeper flavor profile, adding a hint of caramel or toffee-like taste.

Chocolate

Chocolate adds a decadent richness to baked goods with its deep cocoa flavour, making it perfect for indulgent treats. Try adding a deep flavoured Brown Sugar to the mix for enhanced chocolate flavour.

Method
Place the mixed fruit and wine in a bowl and leave to soak (for at least half an hour, ideally overnight).
Preheat oven to 180°C bake. Grease and flour a 21cm high-sided round cake tin.
In a large bowl, cream the Tararua ButterChelsea White Sugar and Chelsea Dark Cane Sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, then beat in rum, lime zest, lime juice, almond essence and vanilla. Stir in the wine and fruit mixture.
Sift together Edmonds Standard Grade Flour, Edmonds Baking Powder, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and salt. Fold into the batter, being careful not to over-mix. Pour into prepared tin.
Bake for 55-65 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave to cool in tin for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Dust with Chelsea Icing Sugar before serving, if desired.
NOTE: recipe updated December 2022 - now makes one cake rather than two (double the recipe if you need two cakes).
