English Parkin

8 oz black treacle
3 oz butter, melted
1 lb fine oatmeal
8 oz plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons ground ginger
4 oz dark brown molasses sugar
1 1/4 cup milk
1 medium egg
2 oz raisins
2 oz sultanas

Its worth making two of these and storing one, because the flavour
matures if it is kept for a month.

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Mix all dry ingredients together in large bowl. Measure the treacle
into a bowl or measuring jug (the easiest way to do this is to
stand the tin of treacle in a saucepan of hot water until it will
pour easily) and then stir in the melted butter. Beat the egg with
the milk, and add to the dry ingredients with the treacle/butter
mixture. Beat until well mixed and any lumps of flour have been
dispersed. Mix in the dried fruit. Pour into a large greased
square or oblong cake pan, and bake in the preheated oven for about
90 minutes, until the cake springs back when pressed, and a skewer
inserted into the middle comes out clean.

It is nice served with cheese.
