  • Boil 1st lot of ingredients for approximately 4 mins… watch it doesn’t catch on the bottom and burn. LET IT COOL.
  • Then add 2nd lot of ingredients.
  • Mix together gently and pour into paper lined loaf tin – I use my largest loaf tin.
  • Bake @ 180c for approximately (test with skewer) 1 hour 7 minutes & cover with tin foil half way through to stop top getting too browned.
