1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 c. water
1/2 c. sherry, more for moistness
3 beaten eggs
1 tbsp. orange rind
2 tbsp. golden syrup
2 c. self-rising flour
1 c. plain flour

Mix first 8 ingredients in a saucepan. Bring slowly to a boil, stirring often. Allow to cool. Add eggs, orange rind and syrup. Fold in flour and mix well.

Place in a 9 inch square pan lined with brown paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. This cake is more moist if kept in an airtight container a week or more before serving.
