Edwardian Loaf Recipe 1909.
Take half a pound of white sugar and half a pound of butter, beat these with the hand well together to a cream; add four eggs, one at a time, and well beat each one with the butter and sugar. Lightly mix in one pound of flour, previously mixed with one teaspoonful of baking-powder, then lightly mix with the whole half a pound of raisins. Bake at once thoroughly in a quick oven. This makes two most nourishing loaves.
