Another one of my favourite recipes for teabreads. It's full of juicy fruit that's been soaked in tea and it's spicy too.
375g mixed dried fruit
125g soft brown sugar
150ml hot tea of choice
1 large egg
1 tbspn milk
50g chopped walnuts
225g sr flour
1 tbspn mixed spice
Preheat oven 150C/gas3
Grease and line a 900g/2lb loaf tin.
Put the fruit, sugar and tea in a large bowl and leave to infuse together for about 4 hours or overnight.
Beat the egg and milk together and add to the bowl with the walnuts.
Sift the flour and spice together and fold into the fruit mixture.
Put into the tin and bake for about 50mins to an hour.
Leave to cool on a wire rack.
