  • Mix all dry ingredients. Add treacle and about 3/4 of a pint of milk, mix to make a stiff dough, add more milk as needed - should be stiff not runny.
  • Pour into a 2lb loaf tin, buttered or lined with baking paper.
  • Bake at 180C/350F/gas 4 for 1 hour, as with all bread should sound hollow when you tap the bottom if cooked, if not put back in oven without tin for 10 mins. Cool on wire rack.
