225g Sugar (brown or what ever you choose)
2 teaspoons Mixed spice
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
270g tin of crushed pineapple
Boil all of the above ingredients in a saucepan for about 10 minutes then allow to cool, I usually leave over night.
225g Self raising flour
pinch of salt
Beat really well (it will be sloppy)
Line an 8" cake tin and bake for one and a half hours at 150oC
I have used marzipan and fondant icing on this cake to use at Christmas! The longer it's kept the more delicious it becomes.
