Vegan GF Tea Cake

1 1/4 cup GF Flour
1 tsp GF baking powder
1 level tsp Xanthum Gum (tesco sell this)
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup vegan marg
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup apricot jam

Mix dry ingredients and then add the wet.  Mix thoroughly and pour into a lined cake tin (or a silicone cake mould).  Bake for 30 mins or until a skewer comes out clean.

Variations:
Add Lemon flavouring + Lemon Zest, Poppy seeds or replace the jam with apple puree and some cinammon.  Also, if you use strawberry instead of apricot jam it gives the cake a honey-ish flavour!  


For a more moist cake, replace the marg with oil (i.e. use half a cup).


For an appley tea cake replace the jam with grated apple.
