DIRECTIONS

  • put the saffron in a jug and pour in 230 ml of hot water.
  • leave to infuse for at least 20 minutes.
  • put the butter and sugar in a large saucepan and stir over a moderate heat.
  • When the butter has melted and mixed with the sugar, add the sultanas and cherries.
  • pour in the saffron water.
  • return to heat and simmer gently for 5 minutes.
  • leave to cool.
  • preheat over to 180c/gas 4.
  • grease and line a 500gr loaf tin.
  • stir in the flour/salt and baking powder and slowly stir into saffron mixture to form a batter.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf tin and bake for between 1 and 1 and quarter hours, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • leave to cool on a rack.
  • serve in slices with butter.
  • I have a 1 KG tin, so just use double the mixture and bake longer
