Spice Cake ( Kek Berempah )


  • 250 g sifted all-purpose flour
  • 2 g baking powder
  • 1 g salt
  • 250 g white sugar
  • 200 g unsalted butter – chilled, cut into tablespoon-size pieces
  • 3 g grated lime zest
  • 3 g ground nutmeg
  • 1 g ground cinnamon
  • 1 g ground allspice
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teasppon honey
  • 120 ml evaporated milk ( kalau tak ada susu sejat,susu biasa pon boleh)
  • 50g nuts ( eg: cashew,walnut,almond)
  • 30g raisins
  • *OPTIONAL* 20g dried fruits ( eg: cherry )

How to make:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt, set aside. In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter.
  2. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the lime zest, honey, nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice.
  3. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk, stirring after each addition. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 75 to 90 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Halfway through cooking, bring out the cake and sprinkle crushed nuts,raisins and dried fruits. Then continue to bake until cooked.
  5. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a rack to cool completely.

Again,found the recipe at AllRecipes.com from a recipe called the Grenadian Spice Cake. Though I did make some changes. The original recipe called for susu biasa but I used susu sejat instead. I also added walnuts and raisins sbb tak nak kek nya rasa plain sgt :p
Rasa kek ni macam kek buah sikit2 tapi sedikit lain sbb letak hirisan kulit limau purut in the acuan. Very nice and sesuai untuk minum2 petang 🙂
