Sue had lived in London and got this recipe there. It is traditionally served on Rosh Hashana, symbolic of sweet wishes for a New Year. The recipe makes enough batter for 2 loaf shaped pans. I used glass pyrex pans and they were over cooked when baked the full hour. I think this tastes best after a few days so make ahead if possible!
