DIRECTIONS

  • Set oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit or Mark 3.
  • Place the butter, syrup, fruit, lemon rind and milk in a saucepan and heat until the butter is melted. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring gently. Allow to cool.
  • Sieve together the flour, salt and spices into a bowl and make a well in the center.
  • Beat the eggs lightly together, pour into the well, but do not stir in just yet.
  • Add the soda to the butter mixture; pour into the well over the eggs and mix thoroughly.
  • Turn into a 7 or 8 inch cake tin lined with buttered greaseproof paper and smooth over the top.
  • Bake for 1 3/4 to 2 hours, covering the top with kitchen foil if it appears to be browning too quickly.
  • Cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then turn out on to a wire rack.
  • Remove the paper when the cake is cold.
