    1. No, not yet though I remember making something very similar in the past, when I still had a reason to cook and still owned a loaf tin! It may be that this is Mum’s version of the recipe I had, as she gave me Marguerite Patten’s cookery book as a wedding present – the same one she used. I’ll have to get another loaf tin. 😇
