Fruit and Spice Loaf

A quick post, as the recipe is online.

Another good recipe for a teabread - just fancied making one to have with a cuppa.

 I changed a few things in the recipe - I used 'Quatre Epices', a French spice mix which has cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger, and the cloves and nutmeg give the cake a lovely spicy musky  flavour. I also used dark muscovado sugar as I didn't have any of the light. There's marmalade in it and I used a thick cut, but cut the pieces of peel into small bits. The wholemeal flour makes it quite a dense cake, but the flavours are great, and we enjoyed a slice with some butter.
I think if I made it again, I would use part wholemeal and part white flour for a better texture.
At least the fruit didn't sink to the bottom this time!






 This is the recipe, on the Baking Mad site.

I'm a big fan of spices in a cake - this looks perfect to enjoy with a cuppa!
