A lovely loaf cake that keeps fresh for days. Nice sliced and spread with butter; even better toasted and topped with ricotta.

What a handsome looking loaf!
Perfect…I got a new oven yesterday (I’ve been oven less for weeks…shock horror!) and I am ready to bake!
This loaf looks delicious, must give it a go. I think my grandchildren would love it too. My latest effort in the kitchen which I would like to share is wild garlic pesto. I recently put a recipe on my blog if you would like to hop over for a visit! http://therunningwave.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/one-year-ago-exactly.html
Changed the dried apple for dried apricot (only cos I didn’t have any) and it was yum! Flatmates approved too. Just finished the last of it at break.
Did I miss the part where the AMOUNT of baking soda was listed? Sounds YUMMY, btw. Only wish conversions for us across the pond.
Loaf uses self raising flour so doesn’t need baking soda. If this isn’t available in the US, a teaspoon in plain flour should suffice.
Thanks for the reply however it’s the baking POWDER amount that is missing in the recipe!! Instructions say to mix it with the flour so really need this info please. Can’t wait to try it!! I appreciate your help in fixing this.
Sorry for the confusion, Gloria! It’s one teaspoon.
