A lovely addition to any teatime table. I often change the dried fruit mix in the loaf from all mixed fruit; I might add blue berries, cranberries, fresh diced apple, dried apricot etc, making sure the total amount of fruit added to the dough remains at 300g. This recipe makes two fruit loaves. This loaf is good fresh or toasted and covered with butter. The loaf can be frozen and the icing added once the loaf has defrosted.
The picture shows the iced topping made with the zest and juice of an orange. - 02 Mar 2018
