Adapted from Anna Thomas's The Vegetarian Epicure.

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1/4 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsps vanilla extract
1 cup milk or cream
1 cup currants
1 cup dates
add cinnamon to your own taste

Combine dry ingredients in bowl, then add the egg, butter, and cream. Add the vanilla and almond extracts. Fold the currants and dates into the batter.

Bake at 350 for at least 40 minutes.

I made this as cupcakes, as I'm travelling over the holidays and have had far better experiences traveling with muffins or cupcakes than I have had with cake, however, you're supposed to make this in a bundt pan.


Mix confectioner's sugar together with warm water diluted orange juice.
