Sultana Cake

by John ‘the guide’ Thomson
As they say, ‘Tried and True,’ and seldom declined on a Wednesday trip. I’ve been making this cake for close on 60 years. And so have many other people. The amounts reveal its origins in the days of pounds (lb.) and ounces (oz.), translated here into metric measurements. I like the cake well done, to enhance the flavour of the sultanas.

450g sultanas 225g butter 340g sugar 1 tblsp golden syrup 3 eggs 1 tsp baking powder 340g flour

  • preheat the oven to 160°C
  • boil thesultanas in one cup water till no water left
  • add the butter, sugar and golden syrup
  • melt gently
  • beat and stir in the eggs
  • mix the baking powder with the flour, and stir in
  • transfer to a baking dish of about 25 x 20cm, lined with a sheet of baking paper (no need to grease the tin)
  • bake 1½ hours

Serves 16-20
