Apple & Sultana Cake

Hi, I just joined. I'm not vegan as such, but I am allergic to eggs and intollerant to cows dairy produce. So most things I bake are vegan.

Here is a cake I made before Christmas.

It's an apple and sultana cake the recipe is as follows:
12oz plain flour
8oz sultanas
8oz chopped apple (peeled and cored - pieces should be small, possibly grated would be better)
6oz vegetable marge
4oz sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground mixed spices
2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 tbsp vinegar (I use malt vinegar, but white wine vinegar works too)
1/2 pint apple juice

1. Sieve the flour, ground spices, salt, sugar and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl.
2. Add the marge and rub until you get a crumbly mixture.
3. Add the fruit and stir well.
4. Mix the vinegar and juice then stir them into the dry ingredients really well.
5. Pour into a lined cake tin.
6. Bake in the oven for 1 hr 45 mins at 170C.

p.s. tsp=teaspoon, tbsp=tablespoon. sorry measures are in imperial.
