Tea Bread Recipe

Step 1

This recipe is great for using up fruit that you already have in the house.

I have used a dried fruit mixture of apricots, nuts and sultanas. 

First step is soaking your fruit, ideally overnight, in 450g of cold tea.

Step 2

The next day, mix your fruit and tea mixture with the rest of the ingredients.

Step 3

Next, line two loaf tins, dependent on the size, and equally divide your mixture.

Step 4

Pop your loaf in the oven for around 40 minutes at 160 degrees. Check that it’s cooked through before removing and leaving to cool.

Step 5

Pop the kettle on, pour yourself a big cuppa and tuck in.

Happy #nationalteaday everyone.
