Set the oven to warm, gas mark 3/325F/160C.
Sift the flour, salt and mixed spice into a bowl.
Rub in the margarine until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Stir in the sugar and sultanas.
Mix together the milk, water vinegar and bicarbonate of soda, then stir into the flour and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon.
Transfer the mixture into the tin and sprinkle over the nut topping.
Bake in the centre of the oven for about 1 hour 45 minutes or until cooked. (Insert a skewer into the middle of the cake, if it comes out clean the cake is done, if there is mixture on the skewer then it needs longer in the oven).
Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out.
