Spiced Drizzle Cake

This cake is really yummy and easy to make, it's delicious eaten alone with a cup of tea or with some yummy custard :)
And it's butter free :)


1 and 1/2 cups of plain flour
3/4 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/3 cup of milk ( I used butter milk as I had some from the butter that I made yesterday)
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder

For the spiced drizzle:

2 tbsp icing sugar
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
2- 3 tbs of cold water.

Preparation Method:
Pre heat the oven to 175
In a large mixing bowl sieve the flour and baking powder and add in the sugar and salt.
Now add in the milk,egg and oil.

Whisk everything together and until you get a smooth cake batter.
The batter will be runnier than usual as there is oil in it instead of butter.

Grease and flour a cake tin and pour the batter into it and wrap the pan on the surface a few times to get rid of air bubbles.

Pop the tin on the middle shelf of the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes (oven temps may vary).

Check to see if the skewer comes out clean after the cooking time, if it doesn't put the cake back into the oven for another 2-3 minutes until cooked.

Make holes all over the cake and pour the drizzle all over it  :)

Enjoy :)
