We first tried this recipe before my daughter was diagnosed as a diabetic, but it's now a good cake to bake and keep.
Put these together and leave overnight
Add one egg and 8 oz self raising flour (you may wish to try half s.r. white flour and half s.r. wholemeal flour)
Bake for one hour at gas mark 4 in a 2lb loaf tin
Leave at least one day before cutting for flavours to permeate . Making a second batch will enable you to cut and freeze some for later.
The flavours are so full that you only need one small slice to enjoy with a nice cup of English tea!
Thanks to my friend Sheila for sharing this treasured recipe !
