English Queen Cakes

These individual sponge cakes, enriched with sultanas, are very easy to prepare. Children enjoy piling the mixture into the paper cases - and. licking the spoon! in the past, the mixture would sometimes be baked in heart-shaped tins and would then be called heart cakes, which were eaten accompanied by a glass of wine or cider.
