CUTTING CAKE – Very Like Ernest Adam’s Light Fruitcake
1½ tbsp cornflour
1 cup each of cold water and sugar
225g butter
½ tsp each of almond essence, lemon essence, orange essence and vanilla essence
3 eggs
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
450g sultanas
Boil the cornflour and water until thick, then cool.
Cream the butter, sugar and essences, then add the eggs, one at a time. Sift the flour, baking powder and coat sultanas with a few spoonfuls. Add the remaining flour and baking powder alternately with the cornflour mixture to the creamed mixture. Lastly add the sultanas and pour the mixture into a paper-lined cake tin.
Bake at 170°C for 1½ hours.

You could add mixed spice, cinnamon,to make it more flavoursome!
