Loaf Cake

This is a quick & easy cake you can whip up if you have guests coming - I made one yesterday, and as ever, it goes down very well.  I got this recipe from my step-mum and it's one of the kids favourite cakes.

Pain d'Epice (Spice Bread) or Loaf Cake as I like to call it...

125g plain flour
150g icing sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground mixed spice
2 tsp baking powder
175g unsalted butter (room temp)
4 eggs

This couldn't be easier - put everything into a food processor and mix together until well blended.  

Pour into a loaf tin and bake for 45mins at 170C fan / 190C / 375F / Gas 5.  

Serve warm with optional fruit conserve, although I personally don't think it needs it.
