This was in my mum's recipe collection that I inherited. You can substitute golden syrup for the treacle.
Altered ingredient amounts. This recipe was quick and easy. I tried it out on my colleaugues and they all have to have the recipe! I have made it 3 times in one week and it is quickly becoming famous. I do recommend using 1/4 teaspoon cloves instead of 1 teaspoon. Also, I didn't need to cook as long as the recipe said. This recipe also works great witht he KitchenAide stand mixer. - 18 Jul 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. This cake is quite good but I just can't leave anything without putting my mark on it. I plumped sultanas by soaking them in fresh orange juice and of course increased the the spices. But still very good - 18 Jul 2008
This recipe was easy to make and turned out very moist. My husband and children loved it but it was a little bland for my taste. I think I would try a little more spice next time. - 18 Jul 2008
