The recipe that stood out to me, because it seemed so decadent/grotesque (delete depending on your view of things), was the enormous sponge cake using a whole bottle of golden syrup. A. Whole. Bottle. Take new bottle from cupboard, empty into saucepan, throw away empty bottle. Well, call me weird, but that was a clarion call if ever I heard one!
225g light muscovado sugar
450g golden syrup, plus additional 4 tablespoons for pouring
450g self raising flour
