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)


Finely sift the flour into a mixing bowl. Rub the fat into the flour. Add all other ingredients, milk and syrup last. Mix well.
Put in a 10"x7"x2" tin
Bake in the middle of the oven – gas mark 6 (200°) for 50mins to an hour – test with a skewer. When it is done the skewer should come out clean – that may mean leaving it until the outside is almost burned. Turn out onto a wire tray and leave to cool.
Serve with butter in fairly thick slices. Keep in an airtight container.
