    I made this for my OH a few weeks ago but used Splenda and Flora in place of butter and sugar.

    I made another on Sunday but used blackberries

    You could also use blueberries, loganberries or possibly even strawberries but I would use frozen strawberries defrosted as they are softer than fresh.


    Raspberry & Oatmeal Cake

    100g butter
    Grated zest of 1 orange
    1 tbspn of orange juice
    100g Caster sugar
    2 medium eggs
    125g SR Flour
    1/2 tspn baking powder
    60g of medium oatmeal or oats
    150g of raspberries - fresh or frozen and defrosted

    1lb loaf tin lined with baking paper
    180C or Gas Mark 4

    1. Beat the butter and sugar then alternately add the flour/baking powder and eggs
    2. Add the oats and fold in
    3. Add the orange zest and juice
    4. Fold in the raspberries

    Bake for about 1 hour. Should be firm to the touch and a skewer should come out clean. If not, cook for another 5 mins or so.
    Leave in the tin for 5 mins then transfer to a cooling rack.


    The recipe had white icing over the top but I missed this off.
