 Ingredients List

  • 12 tb Strong tea
  • 1 lb Mixed dried fruit
  • 6 oz Soft brown sugar
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 oz Butter (melted)
  • 9 oz All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 ts Bicarbonate of soda


The mixed fruit can include raisins, currants, and any other kind of dried
fruit you like; chop any larger pieces down to about raisin size. Place
the tea, mixed fruit and sugar in a bowl; cover and leave overnight. Stir
in the egg and melted butter. Sieve the flour and the bicarb together and
fold them in. Line the bottom of a large loaf pan with baking parchment,
and brush the whole inside of the pan with melted butter. Pour the
mixture in and smooth the top. Bake in a preheated oven (360 F) on the
middle shelf for 1 1/2 hours. After removing from the oven, leave in the
pan for 2-3 minutes; then turn out of pan and cool on a wire rack.
