Ingredients

Oil spray

2 x 3 second spray(s)

Reduced fat oil spread

½ cup(s), (125g)

Brown sugar

¾ cup(s), (165g)

Egg(s)

2 medium

Plain flour

¾ cup(s), (110g)

White self-raising flour

½ cup(s), (75g)

Bicarbonate of soda

½ tsp

Fresh ginger

2 tsp, ground

Ground cinnamon

1 tsp

Ground nutmeg

½ tsp

Skim milk

cup(s), (160ml)

Icing sugar

1 tbs, (30g)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Lightly spray a 22cm bundt cake tin with oil (see note).
  2. Using electric beaters, beat spread and brown sugar in a large bowl until pale and creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift plain and self-raising flours, bicarbonate of soda, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg into a large bowl. Gently fold flour mixture, and then milk, into egg mixture until combined.
  3. Spoon mixture into prepared tin. Bake for 35–40 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer (see Quick Tip opposite). Stand cake in tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool. Serve dusted with icing sugar.

Notes

Originally from Germany, a bundt tin is a deep, round fluted tin with a hollow spout in the centre. If unavailable you can use a gugelhupf (the Austrian equivalent) or a large ring tin.
