Hi all. Does anyone have the recipe that you left overnight with the fruit soaking in hot tea?

This one uhohwhoopsy?

"Cold Tea Loaf ...

2 C flour
4 t baking powder
1 C brown sugar
1 C boiled tea
1 C dried fruit
1 t ginger
1/2 t cinnamon (I'm not a huge fan)

Place fruit in with the cup of boiled tea, leave for a few hours or overnight.
Next day (or later on) mix all ingredients together and pour into a greased loaf tin and cook for approx 1 hr 10 mins @ 160 deg C.
This not only freezes well but is STILL moist up to 5 days later (and oh so cheap to make!)

uhohwhoopsy, I haven't used the recipe at #2 but if you don't like/want to use the spices then IMO omit them - I think that the recipe is one that could easily be varied by the spices that are used/not used and the tea type/flavour that is used, and also the fruit that is used

Hope that helps.:-))
