Walnut cake - with no eggs

Philippa likes making cake, but we had no eggs, so she found a cake recipe which works without eggs. And, remarkably, it's just like normal cake! Proper cakey consistency and everything, and nice too. Here it is, adapted from the veganfamily website:

  • Dry ingredients:
    • 300g wholemeal flour
    • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
    • 100g sugar
    • 1 packet of walnut pieces (200g, or as much as you like...)
  • Wet ingredients:
    • About 1 cup of milk (or enough to mix to a good consistency) (the original recipe used soya milk)
    • About half a cup of sunflower oil
  • The juice of 1 lemon

Mix up all the dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients and mix well. At the last minute add the lemon juice and pour into a greased cake tin.

Bake at about 190C/380F for at least half an hour, or until a skewer (or a knife) comes out clean.
