What you need :-
250g S.R. Flour
375g Mixed Fruit
125g Marj. or Butter
1 Bottle Guinness (330ml). If you have to use a bigger bottle or can, I have no suggestion as to what to do with the surplus.
Also – 8” tin, greaseproof paper, sieve, pan.
Mix the beer, sugar, marj. and fruit in a pan
Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 mins.
Allow to cool (at least 30 mins.)
Beat the egg and add to the mixture
Sieve the flour and add – mix it all up.
Line the tin with paper, bake for 3 hours at 275F, 140C, gas 1 ½ to 2
Keeps for several months and actually improves with age.
