  • 6 tablespoons of ovaltine

  • 1 ½ cups of milk

  • Tablespoon of golden syrup


  • 1.

    Combine the golden syrup and milk together

  • 2.

    So the golden syrup doesn’t stick to the spoon spray it with a little bit of oil (never dip the oil spoon into the golden syrup)

  • 3.

    Give them a stir and pop into the microwave oven for about a minute just so the milk warms through and the golden syrup dissolves

  • 4.

    Whilst that’s warming add a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda to flour and sift these two together

  • 5.

    Once that’s done, add the caster sugar and the ovaltine. Give it a stir

  • 6.

    Now add the milk (check its warm, you don’t want it too hot) give it a stir so the golden syrup dissolves

  • 7.

    Pour the milk in (be gentle)

  • 8.

    As you stir you can see the warm milk reacting with the bicarbonate of soda.

  • 9.

    Mix until nice and thick

  • 10.

    Add fruit (you can use sultanas, raisins, chopped dates

  • 11.

    Pour the mix into a loaf pan
