Soak the currants and sultanas overnight in the tea along with the sugar.
Line a buttered loaf tin with parchment and preheat the oven to 150 C / Gas mark 2.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Add the fruit mixture and stir. Add the flour along with the mixed spice. Turn into the prepared tin and bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool in the tin and then turn out to cool completely.
An incredibly simple recipient. Tastes great too - had great fun making this with my daughter who was amazed at the use for a cup of tea. On attempt 2 I added a few extras, some chopped hazelnuts and cherries. Whilst deviating from the original recipie it made this a great post work out protein and care snack - 31 Jan 2014
