My mother's war-time recipe afternoon tea cake. No egg or butter used!. Moist and sticky,with a nice crust- delicious when buttered. All masurments are UK.

My God will surely punish you for uploading this mess. It was absolutely disgusting! I made it twice, the second time doubling the sugar called for- the extra sugar made the batch just tolerable! Didn't taste the ovaltine at all! Please don't waste your time, just enjoy something that won't waste your ovaltine-tea!
