Ingredients

  • 8 fluid oz cold tea (if using fruit tea, leave the teabag in)
  • 12 oz dried fruit
  • 8 oz Self Raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon of mixed spice (opt)
  • 1 egg

Method

    1. Put the dried fruit into a bowl and pour the tea over, cover and leave overnight (not in the fridge).
    2. After overnight soaking..Preheat oven to Gas Mark 4. Line or grease a 2lb loaf tin. I use a loaf liner for ease
    3. Sieve the flour into a bowl and add spice if using. Pour over soaked fruit and any juices (remove teabag if using!).
    4. Add egg and stir well with wooden spoon until all mixed up.
    5. Spoon into prepared tin and if wished sprinkle over 1tsp of sugar (you don't have to but it gives it a nice crunch and it is only 1tsp!!).
    6. Put into oven and bake for about an hour, maybe a little more depending on your oven.
    7. When cooked through, remove from oven and cool on a rack.
    8. EAT!!! Lovely with butter spread on it. I know that defeats it being fat free but hey ho!!
