   10      oz            Flour
    2      ts            Baking powder
      1/2  ts            Baking soda
    1      t             Mixed spice *
      1/2  ts            Ground ginger
    4      oz            Light brown sugar
    2      oz            Chopped candied peel
    6      oz            Raisins, plain or golden
    4      oz            Butter
    6      oz            Golden syrup **
    1      lg            Egg, beaten
    4      tb            Milk
 
   Servings:  8
   
   *  Equal parts of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. ** Lyons' Golden Syrup,
   carried in some fancy groceries. If you can't find it, use Karo golden 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.
