1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder

- Preheat oven to 180C. Brush a 23cm round springform cake tin with melted butter and line base and sides with baking paper.
- To make crumble, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg into a bowl. Using your fingertips, rub butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Set aside.
- To make cake, combine flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl. Rub butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre, add egg and milk and stir until combined. Spoon mixture into prepared tin and press evenly on base.
- Spread fruit mince over cake base, and sprinkle craisins over mince. Top with crumble mix.
- Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into centre of cake. Stand tin on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove cake from tin and stand on wire rack until cold. Dust with icing sugar just before serving.
Lovely looking cake cooling on the wire rack...
Dust it with a bit of icing sugar...
Then slice it open to discover it isn't baked properly :( ...
See mushy insides...
Oh well at least the edges were edible...
3 out of 5 reindeers! Would of been higher if I baked it properly!
