Today I wanted to bake.. Bran muffins with sultanas but for the life of me I could not find the jar of wheat bran flakes I had, one of liefs little mysteries as it is not in any of my cupboards - back to the drawing board, well recipe book actually. I found a recipe that may have been used back in the days of rationing during the war. No eggs and a scant tablespoon of butter... Sultana Loaf
Into a bowl put 1 cup of either sultanas, raisins, mixed fruit or a combination, add 1 tablespoon of butter, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon golden syrup, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Pour in 1 cup of boiling water, stirring gently until the butter has all melted.
