Sourdough Spelt Xmas Cake

I have not posted anything for ages. It has been a busy year full of life changes, gardening and travelling. I mainly stuck to my usual recipes. But I received the recipe for this interesting cake in West Australian Yoke Mardewi's December newsletter. Just had to try it and it is delicious. Next year should be more settled with lots more experiments in baking, roll on 2019!

It has a dense feel from the photo. Did you feel the bran while eating? I really love this kind of cakes and I want to try to bake more of them next year.

It is quite dense, but not too much so.  I did also add a teaspoon of baking powder as she suggested in the recipe to make it a bit lighter. Not aware of the bran when eating it at all.

It's been a long while. Glad you're back. Cake looks delicious and definitely on my to-do list.
