All Fruit & No Nuts! (Sultana Cake)

Advantages: Good tasty moist cake, & Little Red Hen puts on her pinny!
Disadvantages: Disappears too quick!

I really wanted to have a tea break from the serious type of reviews, and liking a challenge, set myself the target of writing a review for a recipe of a cake I have been making recently. My pastry might only be good as a door stop, and my yorkshire ...
