1) Preheat oven to temperature of 325 degrees.
2) Butter a deep square cake tin of 8-inches and use greased greaseproof paper or non-stick parchment to line it.

3) In a pan, out the syrup, butter, sugar and treacle. Gently heat till melted, occasionally stirring.
4) Add the milk, stir well and leave the mixture aside to cool. Then add the eggs and stir well.
5) Into a bowl, sift together the dry ingredients, add the melted mixture and beat well to mix thoroughly.
6) Into the prepared tin, pour the mixture.
7) Bake in the preheated oven for 1 to 1 ½ hours, or till firm to touch.
8) Turn out the cake and quickly cool it on a wire rack.
9) If you want to freeze the cake, do it at this point. Wrap the cake in foil, pack in a freezer bag, seal, label and freeze.

10) To serve, place the cooled cake on a decorative serving platter and cut into wedges if preferred. If using frozen cake, first remove the wrappings and let it thaw for 4 to 5 hours at room temperature, then place on a serving plate to serve. Makes a good dessert.
