Put 1tbsp chia seeds, 1 cup sultanas, 2 cups water, teabag ( lift out later) 2 tsp mixed spice 1 tsp baking soda. Bring to boil in pot and remove from heat. When cool add 1 cup splenda (or sugar), 2 beaten eggs ,1 tsp baking powder, 2 cups flour. Add more flour or water depending on consistency. Optional to add if you wish; mashed banana, lemon zest, grated carrot/zuchinni, coconut or vanilla essence, walnuts, LSA.Should be a gooey mixture, put in baking paper lined loaf tin (glass one excellent) and bake about 40 mins in a moderate oven. Big loaf, keeps well. Chia seeds replaces the butter, splenda replaces the sugar.
