Sultana Bun

Recipe by Alan Kirk
READY IN: 4hrs
YIELD: 1 cake




  • Cream the margarine and sugar.Beat in the eggs one at a time.
  • Sift the two flours and mix with the sultanas.(This will prevent the sultanas from sinking to the bottom of the cake mix).
  • Add to the mixture and stir until smooth.
  • Grease a 6 inch square cake tin and line with greaseproof paper.Grease this and coat with plain flour.
  • Pour in the cake mixture and spread evenly.
  • Line the outside of the tin with brown paper and tie with string.Put a brown paper lid on top(with holes cut in to allow steam to escape).This will prevent the cake from burning.
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven,325deg F.,for 2.5 - 3 hours,until a skewer comes out clean.An experienced cook can listen to the cake and it will tell you when it is done(no gurgling sound).
  • Once cooked,leave in the tin for 5 minutes before cooling on a wire rack.
  • Cut into slices and serve.
