    When growing up my nana made a sultana cake. This recipe is so close to hers it’s fantastic. Don’t put lemon or almond essence in but 1 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste.

    Love this cake.... my son likes the homebrand light fruit cake from supermarkets so i made this for him. Big hit....perfect for freezer for school and husbands lunch. I dont have the almond or lemon essence so i just add a few drops of doterra lemon oil.
