Cranberry Bakewell loaf

Bakewell tart is my absolute, all-time favourite, so I’ve used the flavours in this loaf.

Prep: 10 mins

Cook: 60 mins

Serves: 8

    Fresh cranberries — which start to appear in supermarkets at this time of year — give it a lovely seasonal twist, and have a tartness that cuts through the cake’s sweetness.

    Method
    • Heat your oven to 180°C/160°C fan and line a 2lb loaf tin with baking parchment or a baking liner.
    • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy
    • Beat in the eggs one at a time
    • Add the almond essence
    • Add half the plain flour and half of the almond flour and mix with a tablespoon of milk. Don’t over mix, stop as soon as it’s incorporated.
    • Add the other half of the plain flour and almond flour and mix with the other tbsp of milk and mix, again only until it’s all incorporated. 
    • Carefully fold in 100g of the cranberries.
    • Spoon into the lined loaf tin and even out the top with the back of a spoon or spatula.
    • Push the other 50g cranberries into the top of the loaf.
    • Bake for 55-60 mins. Cover the top of the cake with foil at around 45 mins to stop potential burning.
    • The cake is ready when a skewer inserted come out clean however do try a few times in to ensure you haven’t hit a cranberry.
    • Turn out of the tin and allow the cake to cool completely on a wire rack.
    • In the meantime, sift the icing sugar into a bowl and mix in the lemon juice a little at a time until you reach a thick pouring consistency. 
    • When the cake is cool, drizzle the icing over the top.  
    • Store in an airtight container and eat within 1-2 days.
