Sultana Tea Cake Recipe

 Here is a really simple recipe to make which is delicious for morning or afternoon tea. We make it often. It is a great cake for when you have little butter in the house as it only uses a small amount. Also it doesn't use milk or eggs, making it lovely and cheap!

1 c sultanas
1 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp cinnamon
25 g butter
1 cup hot black tea
1 cup of brown sugar, or as a substitute I use 1 cup white sugar and a tsp of golden syrup
2 c SR flour

Place the sultanas, spices and butter into a mixing bowl.

Pour over the hot black tea and leave to stand until cold.

Then add the sugar and flour and mix lightly, or loaf will become tough.

Grease and flour a loaf tin, then bake at 180 degrees for 35-45 mins.

This is delicious hot, or eat the next day cold spread with butter.
