This year each class is taking turns to prepare a Teatime Treat for parents.
We will bake in the morning and share the results with our families in the afternoons.
Here is one of the recipes we will use:

Farmhouse Fruit Cake

INGREDIENTS:

6 oz soft tub margarine
4 oz caster sugar
4 oz sultanas
4 oz seedless raisins
4 oz. glace cherries, chopped
12 oz self-raising flour
Pinch of salt
I heaped teaspoon mixed spice
3 tablespoons milk
3 eggs

Grease an 8 in/ 20cm round cake tin and line with buttered greaseproof paper.
Mix the margarine and all the dry ingredients in a bowl, then add the milk and eggs and beat with a wooden spoon until well mixed, for 2-3 minutes.
Turn into the prepared tin and level the top. Bake in the centre of the oven pre-heated to 3500F,1800 C, (mark 4) for 11/2 hours.
When a skewer comes away clean the cake is cooked. Leave in the tin for 15 minutes. Turn out and cool on a rack.
