On saturday my OH and I are going to visit our son in laws grandma.
Lisa and Charlie asked us if we would like to go along with them as charlies grandma had invited us to dinner too.
That got me thinking.....What should I take aas a thankyou gesture?
Well I have bought her a lovely box of chocs but something made by me would be a good Idea too.
Sooooo. I decided to make a malt loaf that MY grandma used to make and it is delicious. She and grandad both lived on the Isles of Scilly for many years until they have now both passed away. But this recipe brings baack lovely memories of the holidays I spent there visiting them.
From a cornish recipe book dated 1968
10oz SR Flour
1 Cup sugar
1 Cup Milk
2 table spoons black treacle
A litttle dried fruit. (i always use sultanas)
Simply mix ingredients together. Put in a greased 2lb loaf tin
Into a preheated oven gas 4 ......elec 180
Cook for 30 mins on low shelf
THEN place a piece of greaseproof paper over the top and cook for a further 45 mins
I don't always spread margarine on a slice but my oh does.
