Pre-heat oven 190°C. Line a loaf tin with baking paper.

In a large microwave-proof bowl or saucepan, melt the Tararua Butter and Chelsea Golden Syrup together.
Add egg and Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar, mix well, then add all other dry ingredients except the Edmonds Baking Soda.

Mix the Edmonds Baking Soda with the Meadow Fresh Original Milk and stir in. 

Pour into prepared loaf tin and bake for 30 - 40 minutes or until cooked (when a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean with no fudgy crumbs attached).

Cool on a wire rack, slice and butter when cool.
