Sultana Loaf in an Advert Break

13 May


Cheap and cheerful sultana loaf time. A weekend of hosting morning and afternoon teas means the cake tins are empty. That makes me sound a bit more 1950s than intended. We also have no eggs, milk, or white sugar in the house.

This Edmonds recipe is a winner for Vegans, and for anyone with dairy and soy allergies.

  • During an ad break on the tele, set the oven to 180deg Celsius.
  • In the next ad break, chuck the following ingredients into a large bowl: 1 cup sultanas, 1 tablespoon butter or dairy-free spread, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon golden syrup, 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  • Sprinkle 1 teaspoon baking soda over the top, then pour 1 cup boiling water into the bowl.
  • Stir a bit, then when the butter has melted, add 2 cups of flour and 1.5 teaspoons baking powder. Stir quickly, bung into loaf tin, bake for 30-40 minutes.

While it’s still hot, cut a massive slab of it, slather it with butter, and eat with nobody watching. You can add half a cup of chopped walnuts if you like, which could be quite tasty.

I always speed up the process by using baking paper in my very worn out loaf tin. I never bother with greasing the tin. I know this isn’t the most environmentally friendly thing to do. My paper gets recycled afterwards, but I still know that’s not ideal. If there is nothing on the tele, spend the time greasing a loaf tin instead of using paper.

    I make this every week, soooo easy, keeps really well and the kids devour it! Can’t go wrong with this one, I chuck in ground ginger and cinnamon for a bit of a change sometimes!
