Armenian Nutmeg Cake

A few weeks ago (shows how behind I am in blogging recipes doesn't it lol), I was after something a little different.  Hubby and I are dieting so we shouldn't be eating cake but I just wanted a taste of something sweet (you know, just a slither of sweetness!) and I needed something for the kid's lunchboxes for school.

I saw this recipe in my folder and thought it sounded a little different so I would give it a go and it was really quite nice.  It doesn't have a really strong flavour so the kids liked it too.  It is just that little bit different to your standard cakes.  I love the little two tone effect it has!


1 cup Self Raising Flour
70 grams Butter, roughly chopped
1 cup Plain Flour
1 teaspoon Bicarb Soda
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 cup Milk
2 cups Brown Sugar, firmly packed
1 egg, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Lightly grease shallow tin 15cm x 20cms (or round tin lol)
Sift flours and nutmeg into large mixing bowl
Stir through the sugar
Rub in the butter until mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs
Spread one third of crumb mixture over the base of the cake tin and press down lightly
Dissolve the bicarb soda in the milk and add to remaining crumb mixture
Add beaten egg and mix well
Pour into the tin
Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean and top is brown
Allow to stand in tin for 10 minutes before turning out
