Fruity tea loaf

    35 min

    Very easy and tasty little recipe to have as a snack with a brew. A fantastic little thing to get the kids involved with. It's also very nice while it's still warm.

    Serves: 10 

    • 200g dried mixed fruit
    • 150ml warm tea
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 300g plain flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon mixed spice

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Oil the inside of your loaf tin (or similar). Put the dried fruit in one of the bowls and pour over the warm tea. Save some tea in case you want to add some more later.
    2. Beat the eggs and add these to the bowl along with the honey (you can add a little more or less of this depending on your taste) and mix it all together.
    3. Into a second bowl mix the flour, baking powder and mixed spice. Once combined add this to the first bowl and mix until all of the ingredients are well combined. The mixture will be thick and sticky (if you want to, add a little more tea, but not too much!). Pour the mixture into the prepared tin, evening it out in the tin.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until a skewer inserted near the centre comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
    5. Remove from oven and leave to cool slightly before removing from the tin.


    I would love to hear other people's take on this and what tweaks you might make to it :)
