   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
  250       g            Self raising flour
    1       t            Level mixed spice
      1/2   ts           Salt
  125       g            Caster sugar
  125       g            Butter
    1       tb           Honey
  125       g            Sultanas
  100       g            Glace cherries
  100       g            Blanched almonds, chopped
                         Or walnuts
  500       g            Very ripe bananas
    2                    Eggs
                         Juice of 1 lemon
 
   Sift flour, spice, salt, and caster sugar, into a bowl. Chop butter into
   small pieces and add that, and then all remaining ingredients - remember to
   peel the bananas first and mash them with a fork.  Mix thoroughly. Turn the
   mixture into a 22cm [9"] loaf tin.  Bake at 180c for one hour, then for
   another 1/2 hour at 160c.  Remove from the tin and cool on a rack. Serve
   thinly sliced and buttered - like most tea loaves, it tastes all the better
   for keeping. From Ron’s (and Lillian’s) Plaice in Blackpool:)
