Method

 
Beat the butter and sugar together until light and creamy. Add the eggs one by one, beating will after each addition. Then add the vanilla essence and beat well. Sift the dry ingredients together. Add to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk, sultanas and 50 ml brandy. Turn the mixture into a greased flat black pot. Grease the lid of the pot and use to cover the pot. Stand the pot on a grid and slowly cook the cake over the coals. Place a few coals on the lid. Bake for about 45-60 minutes without lifting the lid. Remove from the heat once the cake is done. To make the syrup, mix the orange juice, brandy and sugar together. Pierce holes in the surface of the cake and spoon the syrup over the cake, allowing the cake to absorb the syrup. Serve hot or cold with cream or ice cream for dessert, or as a treat with tea or coffee. Serves 6-8.
