This recipe has been passed down through eight generations of my family. It came to me on my 16th birthday as a gift of heritage and wisdom from my grandmother and I have enjoyed baking this recipe once a week for the past 5 years. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. This is a really nice moist tea loaf and can be served hot or cold. Originally the recipe made 23 loaves but my grandmother and me have managed to work it for three.
This is a cake. There is not any yeast in it. - 10 Mar 2013
Made this today and just had a warm slice with butter and chedder cheese, many thanks it made three of the larger loaf tins and i did have to use a standard oven so the tops were slightly overdone, i will adjust this next time, it is not the recipie it is my oven at fault. Flavour wise this is spot on and reminds me of the loaves my grandmother used to make! - 17 Dec 2011
