(Chai) Tea cake from Eva Batt’s Vegan Cooking

A lovely tea time treat- and no-one noticed it’s wheat free and vegan.

  • 2 oz (55g) stoned dates
  • 4 oz (115g) mixed dried fruit
  • 1 oz (30g) mixed peel
  • 1/4 pint (140ml) cold tea (I used 2 bags of chai)
  • 2 oz (55g) brown sugar
  • 2 oz (55g) vegan margarine
  • 1 tbs. golden syrup (or agave etc.)
  • 8oz (225g) self raising gf flour
  • 1 tsp. bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 fl oz (60ml) non-dairy milk
  • Optional topping: 3 tbs. brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, generous shakes of ground nutmeg and ginger.
  1. Make the tea.
  2. Grease and line a 7 inch (18cm) cake tin (or similar).
  3. Chop the dates into small pieces.
  4. Put the dates, dried fruit, peel, tea, sugar, margerine and syrup in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer, and simmer for about 3 minutes. Then leave the mixture to cool.
  5. Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in warm milk.
  6. Sift the flour.
  7. Stir the milk into the flour, then gradually stir in the cooled fruit mixture.
  8. Mix thoroughly, and spoon into the tin. Sprinkle with sugar and spice.
  9. Bake in the centre of the oven for 45 minutes-1 hour until cooked through. Let it cool down before you try to take it out of the tin.
  10. Enjoy (with a lovely cup of tea)!
