8 oz plain flour
¼ tsp salt
3 oz margarine
1 dessertsp orange peel (Grated or peeled in fine strips -be careful not to get any of the white pith on the peel – it is very bitter)
3 oz caster sugar
1 ½ tsp baking powder
1 dessertsp orange juice with milk (about ¼ - 3/8 pint in total)
Grease & line a 6" loaf tin. Set the oven at 190 C, Gas 5
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt.
Add the sugar and orange peel.
Mix in the egg, orange juice and about ½ of the milk. Stir mixture, adding more milk a spoonful at a time to obtain a dropping consistency (until a small amount of the mixture will fall from the spoon if gently shaken). Pour into tin and bake until risen, brown and springy – about 45 minutes to an hour.
