- Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a silicone cake mould well (even the inner rim) and sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
- Beat butter or margarine and sugar with a whisk or mixer until fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time.
- Mix in the flour, baking powder, ground nuts and salt. Fold in the raisins (if using). Spread the cake mixture evenly in the mould.
- Bake the cake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes. When a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean, the cake is ready.
- Allow the cake to cool slightly and then allow it to cool completely on a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar to serve, if desired.

I used this recipe for the first time today, baking a cake for my mother in law's birthday. I cant wait to get the feedback from her. I added choc chips as she's celebrating her birthday with her grandchildren and I know they love choc chips.-23 May 2014
