Tasty Tea Loaf

I finally found some time to do a proper February bake on Sunday, my hand being not forced but nudged by the fact I had over half-a-dozen eggs languishing in the fridge. I do hate waste. By good fortune, I spotted the latest recipes by Great British Bake Off finalist Ruby Tandoh on twitter. Her recipes this week were based around tea and, well, I do love anything tea related. I decided to give the Tea Loaf a try.

It was a really simple recipe to follow. I brewed my tea using a couple of Earl Grey tea bags to give it a strong flavour. I didn’t have any pre-mixed fruit but used raisins, sultanas, currants and a small amount of mixed peel. I was also lacking in an orange so to give it a bit of a zest I substituted a ‘fancy’ satsuma which worked just as well.

50 minutes in my fan oven at approx. 150c did the trick and the result looked quite impressive…

Fortunately, it tasted great too and both Sam and I enjoyed a piece with our Sunday evening cuppa!

I’m now off to try a piece toasted!
