Nut Bread


This is one of my Mum’s recipes. The resulting ‘bread’ is very heavy and should be eaten in small quantities with plenty of butter.

2 cups white flour
2 cups wholemeal flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup sultanas
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2oz margarine or slightly softened butter
1 tbsp syrup
1 cup milk (or a wee drop more)

Rub fat into sifted flour. Add all other ingredients, milk and syrup last. Put in a greased 10"x7"x2" tin Bake in the middle of the oven - regulo 6 (200°) for 50mins.

The top has to be pretty well done for the inside to be cooked so it is worth testing it with a skewer. If the skewer emerges dry the inside is cooked, if it emerges with bits on it is not yet ready.
