Vegan, no added sugar Christmas cake


200g dairy free sunflower spread
10g stevia
equivalent of 4 eggs
100g ground almonds
1tsp almond essence
200g rice flour + extra for coating cherries
1tsp baking powder
grated rind and juice of one large orange
200g sultanas
200g raisons
150g frozen cherries, thawed, cut into two and coated in rice flour
Whole almonds to decorate

Soak the sultanas and raisins in the orange juice.
Meanwhile cream the spread and stevia.  Add the egg equivalent, almond essence, baking powder and rice flour and mix thoroughly.  Stir in the soaked fruit and juice and finally the cherries.  Add a little water if the mixture seems dry. It is a tradition in our house that my daughters and I each take a turn at stirring the mixture and make a wish.  Transfer to a springform cake tin lined with baking parchment, and decorate with almonds.  Bake at 200 degrees for 1 hour approximately.  Turn out onto a cooling rack.
The cake should keep up to a week (I cannot be sure of this since it was eaten long before a week had passed!)

Enjoy
