Fat free fruit tea loaf


This gorgeous little (not so little) tealoaf is great as an after dinner nibble but would be equally great as a snack, with a cup of tea/ coffee or even for breakfast.

Its FAT FREE, easy to make and its ingredients can be chopped and changed. As much as we LOVE this recipe Im definately going to add some nuts and different fruit next time to ‘shake it’ up a bit.

Ingredients

  • 1  tea bag // I used rather ordinary tea //Fat-free fruit TeaLoaf
  • 300g soft dried fruit such as apricots, prunes, apples etc // I used apricots, prunes and raisins (too lazy today to make my own dried apple… but any dried fruit will work great//
  • 175g soft brown sugar
  • 2 medium eggs beaten
  • 225g wholemeal flour //I used plain white flour this time purely because i havent been out to buy wholemeal flour yet… it still turned out beautifully//
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp mixed spice

How to make it

Soak the tea bag in 300ml boiling water for 5 minutes

Roughly chop the fruit and add to the tea, discarding the tea bag and soak for 2 to 3 hours

Preheat the oven to 180C, gas mark 4

Grease and base line a 1kg loaf tin

Mix in the sugar and eggs

Mix together the flour, baking powder and mixed spice and fold into the fruit mixture

Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 45 minutes or until firm to touch and a skewer comes out clean

Allow to cool slightly before slicing

Sorry about my camera quality… It really does look ALLOT better in real life than in this photo, almost identical to the first photo. Anyway it tasted B-E-A-utiful.

hmmmm…. wonder what it would be like toasted? Food for thought lol.
