Recipes, by request.....

Hello to all my scrapbooking friends.........


On Saturday I promised you all that I'd post my recipes for your favourite "naughty" treats! So here goes:


Orange and Sultana loaf

8oz SR flour

1/2 tsp bicarb of soda

1oz lard

1oz marg

4oz caster sugar

grated rind and juice of 1/2 orange

6oz sultanas




  1. Mix flour and bicarb, rub in fat (I only used butter!)

  2. Mix in sugar, orange rind and sultanas

  3. Make the juice of the 1/2 orange up to 1/4 pt with milk

  4. Add to the dry ingredients and mix well

  5. Place the mixture in a greased loaf tin (2lb - I use)

  6. Bake in a moderate oven, 160 c or gas mark 3 for about 1 1/2 hours.


I wish I had doubled the recipe and frozen the other for next months crop!



Nutty Flapjacks


4oz butter
1 tbl spoon golden syrup
4oz sugar
2oz oats
2oz SR flour
3oz crushed cornflakes






  1. Melt the butter and syrup, very gently (I microwave it)

  2. Mix the dry ingredients, pour on the butter mixture and mix well

  3. Spread evenly in a greased swiss roll tin and press down firmly

  4. Bake in a moderately hot oven 190 c or Gas 5 for 20 mins

  5. Cut into fingers whilst still warm and leave to cool in tin.


I always double this recipe, you need at least one and a half times it for a swiss roll tin in my opinion!



Happy baking.
