As promised, the recipe

SULTANA CAKE (A moist cake - keeps well)

225g sultanas
199g butter or firm margarine cut into small pieces
175g sugar
2 small beaten eggs
a little almond essence
175g self raising flour
pinch of salt
50g chopped nuts (optional - if using reduce sultanas to 175g)

Cover sultanas with water and soak overnight. Next day bring to the boil.
Strain sultanas and mix while hot with butter/marge. Add sugar eggs and almond essence.
Sift in flour and salt.
Lastly add nuts if required and mix well.
Take a 20cm (8 inch)round cake tin and line with greased paper or baking parchment. Tip in the mixture and smooth the top.
Bake in a moderate oven Gas Mk4 - 350F - 180C for 30 minutes.
Lower heat to gas Mk2 - 300F - 150C until firm to the touch in the centre.

Leave to cool if you can resist warm cake. Slice, eat and enjoy.

This recipe was passed on by Geoff & Babs Boughton and originated from a Mrs C M Armstrong of Canonbie, Dumfriesshire.
