Use a Three-pound loaf tin (no grease required) or better, a paper tin liner• A mug for all the measurements (makes two) or a cup for one loaf• Mixing bowl, spoon, oven, bottle opener, glass, Foil, fork,
2 1/2 mugs of Fruit use what you like, Sultanas, raisins, Currents (Careful with these as I heard of someone drowning because of a strong currant) Apricots, Cherries etc.
Some nuts (Hazelnuts or Walnuts or whatever you fancy, just launch it in.
1 mug of soft brown sugar
1-˝ cups of hot strong tea• You can add some medicinal spirit at this stage• (Purely for research purposes).
2 ˝ mugs of brown self-raising flour.
Mix all the ingredients and the tea together and leave overnight- with hot tea you can get away leaving for 2 hours.
Now have a glass or two of wine.
Then add 2 eggs (free-range organic eggs from your own coup, or some from Tesco’s up the road!
Add the brown self-raising flour (despite the name of this stuff, I have found you still have to lift it out of the packet).
Mix it up well so it is a big stodgy mess then put it in the tins. If you use paper liners you will miss the paper liner with the first spoonful and get the mixture in between the tin and the liner at this point and start swearing.
Place in the oven at gas mark 4 or 180 if you have one of those electric things for 1 ˝ hours. Cover it with foil or you will burn the top.
Retire for more wine.
Once done, remove and put on a grill if you have one to cool, but if you prick the top and pour on Whiskey or Brandy it tastes much better!
Toast the Mcpudd with whatever you poured on top.
Easy this cooking lark…..
