Spiced Nut Cake

Spiced Nut Cake created by CulinaryQueen

The hazelnuts can be replaced with chopped almonds or walnuts and multi-coloured glace cherries and mixed peel instead of cranberries. We prefer the cranberries and hazelnuts. Freezes well and is nice to have available over the holiday season.

    Batter seemed thin. Didn't have cranberries or hazelnuts, so I used currants and walnuts instead. Unfortunately, the currants sank to the bottom. Regardless, this is very tasty. I like the crispy toffee-like edging. This is a keeper and will make again. Goes great with a cuppa! Thanks Derf!

    Tasty, addictive, more-ish...subbed 1/2 white flour with 1/2 wholemeal flour, used mixed fruit and walnut, lovely texture, very easy to make. Also reduced half the sugar and it was still plenty for me, as well as subbing butter with 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Next time I'll add abit more spice. Sorry to make so many substitutions, but then you could say this was a great inspiration! Thanks!
