Categories: Greek, Desserts, Cakes, Vegan
Servings: 1

1 tb Veg. margarine or peanut oil
1 c Tahini
1 c Caster sugar
1 Orange (grated rind only)
3/4 c Strained orange juice
2 1/4 c Plain flour
1 pn Salt
3 ts Baking powder
1/2 ts Bicarbonate of soda
1/2 ts Ground allspice
1/2 c Finely chopped walnuts
1/2 c Sultanas (white raisins)

This cake is frequently made during Lent as it contains no animal
products. Peanut butter, the smooth, creamy variety, may be used instead
of tahini.

Oven temperature: 180 C (350 F)
Cooking time: 45-60 minutes

Grease a 20 cm (8 inch) tube pan or a 20 x 30 cm (8 x 12 inch) slab cake
pan with melted margarine or oil. Chill in refrigerator until required.
Beat tahini, sugar and orange rind for 10 minutes, then gradually beat in
orange juice. Sift dry ingredients twice and fold into tahini mixture.
Blend in walnuts and sultanas.

Dust chilled cake pan with flour and turn batter into pan. Spread evenly
and knock base of pan on table top to settle batter. Bake in a moderate
oven for 55-60 minutes for tube pan, 45 minutes or so for slab cake. When
cooked, invert cake in its pan onto cake rack and leave for 2-3 minutes
before lifting pan from cake. Cool cake and cut in slices or squares to
serve. Store cake in a sealed container.
