    Cake Ingredients:

    110g caster sugar

    175g self raising flour

    1 tsp cinnamon

    Buttercream Ingredients:

    50g vegan butter

    200g icing sugar

    1 tsp cinnamon

    1 tbsp soya milk

    Handful of chopped pistachios


    1. Soak the fruit in the hot tea (with the teabags left in) for at least 6 hours (or overnight if easier).

    2. Once the fruit has soaked up all the tea preheat the oven to 160C fan then remove the teabags and add all the other cake ingredients to the bowl and mix well.

    3. Put the mixture into a greased and lined 2lb load tin and bake for 50 minutes until golden brown.
