I remember having a slab of this Sultana Butter cake with butter on top at my Nan’s house, it was the ultimate tradition. This cake freezes beautifully – so make a double or triple batch and freeze some for when unexpected visitors arrive.

  1. In a medium bowl, add the tea bags and pour the boiling water over the top and stand for a few minutes.

  2. Remove the teabags and pour in the sultanas and let them 'steep' for about 20 minutes. Pour off any excess liquid and discard.

  3. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease a loaf tin well. Beat together the butter and sugar until creamed.

  4. Add the beaten eggs and vanilla and stir to combine.

  5. Add the sultana mixture alternatively with the sifted flour and milk and fold to combine.

  6. Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and bake for 60 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

  7. Transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool. Serve warm with butter.
