 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   10       oz           Flour
    2       ts           Baking powder
      1/2   ts           Baking soda
    1       t            Mixed spice *
      1/2   ts           Ginger, ground
    4       oz           Sugar, brown, light
    2       oz           Citron, candied -- chopped
    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 light 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.
