I boiled the sultan in cold tea with a a few splashes of whisky, just like an old scottish recipe I had looked at. Very nice.
Delicious! I was tempted to add mixed spice to the recipe but I'm glad I didn't because it really doesn't need it. I agree with everyone else, there really is no need to soak the sultanas overnight. I love the way the butter melts into them after boiling and I'll certainly be making this again. thank you!
Yummy and easy. Thanks.
Agree with Tansy, no need really to soak sultana's overnight. First time I've had a sultana cake with the chopped nuts. FGound it a very nice addition
We really enjoy this cake, have made it twice now, and the second time did not bother to soak the sultanas overnight, just boiled them, drained them and carried on from there. We preferred it that way, as the sultanas did not seem so mushy. Great almond taste, will make again and again.
I'm on a diabetic diet, so I used about 1/3 of the sugar, but I still found it sweet enough to my liking. This was a great treat to go with an evening hot drink, and it kept very well for the several days that it lasted. I will definitely make it often.
