This is a very very simple recipe, as was most war time recipes, having to stick to rations and whatnot. I was a little disappointed how little this loaf rose, and it looked like thick leather, and so was the consistency for a good chunk of it. Definitely didn’t taste like it though, and even though you could probably build your own bomb shelter with it, its pretty nice, I’ll keep it in mind to next time were under nuclear threat.

Don’t put brown sugar on top, unless you want it to look like necrotic flesh. Im not a photographer, you you may be able to tell.

You’ll need:

  • 115g Self raising flour
  • 1/2tsp Bicarbonate of soda
  • 2-3tbsp Golden syrup
  • 150ml Milk
  • 1/4tsp Salt


1. In a medium bowl, mix together the Flour and Bicarbonate.

2. In a non stick saucepan, pour in the milk and syrup and heat until fully combined, pour it into the bowl with the flour and beat. Add the salt. Preheat oven to Gas mark 6/200*C/400*F. Grease a loaf tin.

3. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 30 minutes or so, done.
