you know where most of my recipes comes from - this one in mum's old handwritten book - is so badly stained and used it took me quite a while to decipher - but here it is - JUST FOR YOU!

4oz (125g) butter
1 small cup brown sugar
1 egg
vanilla essence
1 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup dried fruit (chopped dates, raisins or dried apricots)

Cream butter and sugar; add egg and vanilla, then dried fruit. Sift flour with baking powder and add to mixture. Cook in a Swiss Roll tin in a moderate oven for 30 minutes. When cold cover with chocolate butter icing.


  1. *shuts page and runs away* nooo, it sounds too good!

  2. Oh my....this sound good for sure! I have a question....what is a Swiss Roll tin....perhaps it is simply called something else in Canada?

  3. It’s quite appreciable that such information is being shared through a huge network. Keep it up.
