Had to substitute the treacle for golden syrup (which I know technically makes it not quite authentic!) but it worked fine! The oven temperature guide is a bit hazy but I cooked it on 150oC for an hour, then turned it down to around 120oC for the last hour. A little concerned that perhaps 2 hours was a little too long for it, but seems to be ok (although haven't turned it out yet).
