Does anyone have these cookbooks? I used to have them and used them regularly but they fell apart and I threw them out, thinking I would be able to get another copy. Boy, do I regret that now.

Anyway, this is an appeal: if anyone has the books I'm after one particular recipe, so if you have them and have the time to look out the recipe and send me a copy I would be REALLY grateful.

Thanks

Rhiannon

I know I have one of the books at least - what recipe is it you need? If I have it, I'll certainly send it to you.

Cheers

Brillant! Catters strike again.

The recipe I'm after I think was called something like Sultana cake. It had ground almonds in too. I remember you soaked the sultanas overnight. If you have the recipe I would heartily recommend you try the cake - I think it has to be one of the best I've ever tasted. Sadly I can't remember which volume it's in.

I'm thinking of making a couple instead of Christmas cake - a lot more moist.

Many thanks.

Rhiannon

OK you cake-aholics, I'll post it sometime tonight when I get home. However, I will expect donations written on £20 notes to be sent to my favourite charity "Money for Beer for Poor Children's Fathers". These can be left at any convenient hostelry.

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.

The author of this post accepts no responsibility for any ensuing cake overdoses, waistline expansions or other side effects. This cake contains NO CALORIES until consumed.

Enjoy. Happy Yule.

Thanks, Peter.

I seem to remember I left out the nuts but put rather a lot of almond essence in. The nuts made it a little dry. Experiment!

I think this might well be Christmas cake this year.

It's excellent with a glass of sherry.

Thanks Mingulay.

I think I might lash out and increase the butter to 200g rather than 199g though. I'm not that worried about my waistline.

(Reminds me of a Fanny Craddock recipe, I think it was for gingerbread, that required 19 3/4 ounces of black treacle - that's taking accuracy a bit far.)

Sorry about the butter quantity, those with eyesight much better than mine will realise that should have been 100g. Just realised that's the longest thing I've typed since I had my eye op in September. I now have to learn how to proof read again.

As ZM says, forget the nuts and increase the almond essence or even add a drop of Amaretto.

How DO you measure treacle ???

If you have one of those weighing scales that can be set to zero, you put the bowl/saucepan on the scales, set to zero, and add treacle until it shows the weight you want.
Otherwise you could weigh the bowl or saucepan and do a bit of calculation.

I think I'll stick with the 199g of butter, and double all the other ingredients (but now I'll have to work out the volume of the 8 inch cake tin, double it, and then work out what diameter tin I'll need - Oh, I've just had a good idea: two 8 inch tins!)

Topsie, stick with 199g per cake and sod the arteries.

Still puzzled about the treacle though, do you have to allow for stickage? After all, it doesn't flow very well and leaves quite a thick film, a bit like crude oil.

Doh!!!!! I'll get me coat........ again.

Add dry ingredients to mixing bowl, place said bowl on scales, note weight, add treacle to desired weight. At this point some calculation is required. No mess, simple mixing anbd a lovely treacly spoon to lick!

Even better if you have electronic scale:

Place treacle tin on scale, switch on [scale will show zero weight], use spoon or spatula [down boy] to remove some treacle. Scale shows as a minus figure the amount taken, if less than required dump some treacle off the spoon into other ingredients then repeat until your latest spoonfull takes the amount taken over the target. Hold spoon above the tin until the trickle-back shows that you have removed the right amount, clean spoon by stiring treacle into other ingredients.

No mess, no calculation, no possibility of having to try and take treacle back out of the dry ingredients.

On a spring scale you can use the same movements, but you will have to do the subtraction calculation yourself.

The proposed variations on the original recipe are interesting. Never having been the kind of person to shirk from hard work or danger, I am prepared to act as Independent Quality Controller!
If each baker sends me a thick slice, weighing 237.5 grammes, I will give my unbiased opinion and declare a winner.
I am not without experience of taking my life in my hands having once judged the shortbread baking competition at a WRI meeting and escaped with only a few scars!

Re treacle, or golden syrup. Something I though everybody knew was..

To get the stuff to behave, take a bowl of hot or boiling water, remove lid from jar/tin, and stand it in the bowl for a few minutes. The syrup sofetns up, so flows more easily, and can be poured straight from the tin accurately.

Do not use boiling water with glass jars, only with tins. Jars can crack, and cakes with broken glass are not wanted....
