This light cake is ideal for midweek eating. Unlike the creamed rich fruit cake, this version has lightness with added baking powder. Even though it is a homely cake, I still like to draw attention to its special nature by sprinkling the top with nuts or crushed cube sugar or even sparkling preserving sugar. The richness is provided by the butter.
