    This is an easy sultana cake that has all the 'wet' ingredients boiled first then combined with the nuts and flour. There is a touch of chocolate that makes a unique but not overpowering flavour.

    • 2 cups (500ml) water
    • 2 cups (440g) white sugar
    • 250g butter
    • 1 teaspoon salt

    Easy to make and everyone loved it. Could also put custard on it and have it for pudding. I used 2 cups of mixed fruit as I didn't have enough sultanas and that worked out fine. - 14 Dec 2016
