Makes 8 Prep: 10 min Cook: 18 min

Ingredients

Butter 50g
Granulated sugar 100g
Eggs 2
Self raising flour 100g
Branston pickle 5 tbsp

Method

1
Put the butter in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir, then add the sugar and mix well.
2
Add the 2 eggs and mix well. Sieve in the flour and mix again, but don't overmix otherwise it will be heavy with overdeveloped gluten.
3
Add the Branston pickle and mix gently to incorporate evenly. Pour into a 19cm diameter cake tin.
4
Bake in a preheated oven (180℃) for 15-16 minutes. It will finish cooking as it cools to room temperature.

Tips & Note

It looks and feels as if you are making a sweet dish. But it's not! But don't worry, it won't be too sour with the pickle as its acidity halves as it bakes. It has an unexpectedly addictive taste.
