Title: Spice bread (irish)
Categories: Breads, Cakes, Irish
Yield: 8 Servings
10 oz Flour
2 ts Baking powder
1/2 ts Baking soda
1 ts Mixed spice *
1/2 ts Ground ginger
4 oz Light brown sugar
2 oz Chopped candied peel
6 oz Raisins, plain or golden
4 oz Butter
6 oz Golden syrup **
1 lg Egg, beaten
4 tb Milk
* Equal parts of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. ** Lyons' Golden
Syrup, carried in some fancy groceries. If you can't find it, use
Karo golden corn syrup.
Sift the flour with the soda and baking powder, and the mixed spice
and ginger: then add the brown sugar, chopped peel and raisins: mix.
Make a well in the center. Melt the butter with the syrup over low
heat, then pour into the well in the mixture. Add the beaten egg and
milk and mix very well. Pour into a greased 2 lb loaf pan and bake
in a preheated oven at 325 F for 40-50 minutes, or until it tests
done. This bread will keep moist for several days, and actually
improves somewhat during this period.
