Golden Syrup Cake

This golden syrup cake is very easy to make and tastes delicious. It’s a very moist cake and it will last about three days if you keep it in an airtight container.

It only requires a handful of ingredients and one of those is hot water!

  • 100g vegan margarine
  • 75g sugar
  • 200g plain flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 150g golden syrup
  • 150ml boiling water from the kettle
  • Optional: a handful of glacé cherries, halved
  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC / 350ºF
  • Line a 2lb loaf tin with greaseproof paper or margarine.
  • Beat together the sugar and margarine in a bowl until combined, then slowly mix in the golden syrup
  • Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix well
  • Add the boiling water, mix everything together so there are no lumps
  • Optional – if you’re using glacé cherries in your cake, roll them first in a little flour and plop them into the cake mixture as you pour it into the baking tin (coating them in flour stops them sinking to the bottom of the cake)
  • Bake in the lower half of your oven for 40 minutes, then cool on a rack
  • Eat and enjoy!

As an alternative to glacé cherries, try mixed peel instead

Inspired by a recipe at Heavenly Vegan Baking. Love, respect and thanks to them.
