Torta Cinzia

The latest arrival at serene555's Bakery...

It's a variation on a recipe for Torta Cinzia.

Quite simple actually... here's how I did it:

Leave 1/2 cup sultanas to soak in warm water for 2 hours. Drain and pat dry.

Combine 2 eggs, 1¼ cup sugar, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup oil (the recipe called for seed oil e.g. corn or palm oil, which I didn't have and so I used olive oil--it turned out okay).

Then fold in 1¾ cup sifted self-raising flour. Add sultanas and grated rind of 1 lemon.

Bake in a preheated 180ÂșC oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

I served it with some custard poured over the top.
