Chefs rum and raisin bundt bread tastes delicious as it is or even lightly spread with butter or vegan margarine.

How to make an egg free bundt cake

Place raisins,cherries and candied peel into a bowl with 10 tablespoons of hot water and 4 tablespoons of dark rum.

Stir a little then leave for 30 minutes for the raisins to plump up.

If you are using small raisins you will have to soak the raisins for some what longer so that they plump up well.

In a large mixing bowl place plain flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, 6 ounces of sugar

Mix very well to combine ingredients.

Add the desiccated coconut and one more ounce of sugar.

Mix well. Use your fingers to crush any large clumps of sugar.

Add the oil and rub together using your fingers.

Slice the vanilla pod down the middle and scrape out the vanilla seeds.

Pour the milk into a pan along with both the seeds and pods.

Gently warm the milk until it hot yet before it reaches full boiling stage.

Once the milk is hot enough carefully remove the vanilla pods but leave the seeds in the milk for flavour.

Pour half of the milk mixture into the coconut flour mixture.
Give it a quick gentle mix.

Drain the rum raisins being sure to keep the rum and water juices in a bowl - do not discard the rum juice.

Add the raisins to the coconut mixture, give it a light mix then gradually pour in the rest of the hot milk.

If you are using and electric mixer now is the time to remove the bowl and stir by hand, or else the soaked raisins will turn mushy as electric mixers are to fast and powerful.

Add the 2 ounces of white bread crumbs and lightly mix well.

Add 3 tablespoons of the rum juice that the raisins were soaked in to the cake mixture.

Mix well.

At this point you if you smell the aroma of the rum and coconut you will one happy cook.

Add one more ounce of white bread crumbs mix well.

Grease and flour a medium sized bundt cake tin.

Carefully fill the bundt cake tin with the mixture by added one spoonful at a time all around the tin, gently spread evenly once full.

Place into a hot oven at gas mark 7 for 25-30 minutes - do not open the door until at least 25 minutes have past.

Turn down the oven heat to gas mark 5 and bake for another 20-30 minutes.

Towards the end of baking make sure that the skewer comes out completely clean, if not bake for 5 minutes longer until the skewer is clean.

Once cooked leave the rum and raisin bread in the tin for a 5-10 minutes then use a plastic knife or other untensil to slide around the bundt tin.

Carefully remove the cake and leave to cool on a wire rack.

Once fully cool lightly dust with powdered sugar.

Slice and serve as it is or lightly spread with butter/margarine.

Enjoy Chefs eggless rum and raisin bread recipe.

Great looking bundt recipe.
I've been trying to find something different to couple with the raisins in my rustic raisin overload bread. I originally used fennel and it is delicious. So much so that my mother loves it but proved to be allergic to fennel (I know, weird!). But the addition of maybe rum or coconut just might be the best substitution.
I'll have to make it and get her feedback.
Looks good.
