  • 340g self-raising flour

  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1/2 pints water

  • 2 large eggs beaten

  • 225g soft dark brown sugar

  • 2 tbsp malt extract

  • 85g butter

  • 225g sultanas

  • 225g raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 180C/Gas Mark 4. Grease or line 2 x 1lb loaf tins.
  2. Put the sultanas, raisins, butter and water together into a large saucepan. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Allow to cool a little.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt together. Stir in the sugar.
  4. Pour in the warm fruit mixture and add the beaten eggs and malt extract. Mix well with a spoon. It will be fairly runny at this stage.
  5. Pour into the prepared tins and bake in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes, then move to a lower shelf and bake for a further 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Allow to cool in the tin for 5 minutes.
