About this recipe: Very, very quick and easy, only six ingredients and no fat either!! I sometimes ask people to guess what is in the cake as it tastes very good. Serve sliced with butter in the traditional tea-loaf style. Easy to make and freezes very well.

Something else. when greased loaf tin sprinkle sugar so it coats loaf tin, caramelises sides and bottom of loaf making it crispy and sweet. - 06 May 2010
