Trench Cake Recipe:
During the First World War people in Britain would bake and send a fruit cake to loved ones on the front line. Some traditional cake ingredients were hard to come by, you’ll see there are no eggs in this recipe, but the postal service to the front was incredibly efficient when you think about the logistics involved.

Ingredients
1/2 lb flour
4 oz margarine
1 teaspoon vinegar
1/4 pint of milk
3 oz brown sugar
3oz cleaned currants
2 teaspoons cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
nutmeg
ginger
grated lemon rind

Grease a cake tin. Rub margarine into the flour in a basin. Add the dry ingredients. Mix well. Add the soda dissolved in vinegar and milk. Beat well. Turn into the tin. Bake in a moderate oven for about two hours.
