Little Fruit & Spice Cakes
These little cakes are so simple to make & simply delicious to eat. I'm sorry there isn't really a recipe as such. I just use a basic cupcake/fairy cake recipe replacing white sugar with brown or raw sugar. I add a teaspoon mixed spice and 1/2 to 1 teaspoon cinnamon (to your taste) and approx 3/4 to 1 small cup mixed dry fruit (you can soak it it tea/juice or for a treat perhaps brandy/sherry if you like, for a few hours or so) I usually find I need to add approx 1/4 to 1/2 cup extra liquid to the original cupcake recipe in order to accomadate the extra ingredients! I sprinke the tops of each cake with demerera sugar before baking!
