This fruit and spice loaf is so yummy, and can be enjoyed all year round not just at Christmas.

Method

  1. Place the tea, marmalade and sultanas in a bowl and leave to stand for 1 hour.

  2. Preheat oven to 150°C (fan 130°C, gas mark 2). Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

  3. Grease and line a 900g tin and spoon the mixture into the tin. Bake on the middle shelf for 1 hour 15 minutes.

  4. Check that the loaf is cooked by inserting a metal skewer. Push it into the centre of the cake and if the skewer comes out clean, the cake will be baked. If it is still sticky keep baking for a further 5 minutes until the skewer comes out clean.

  5. Remove from the tin and allow to cool on a wire rack before slicing.

    Lovely tea bread, only had white self raising flour and light soft brown sugar but it came out fine, and seems to keep for ages in a tin. Also, I added a couple of table spoons of ammereto while the loaf cooled which has made it smell even better!

    Lovely tea bread! I only had white self raising flour and dark soft brown sugar in the cupboard, but still turned out fine. Did have to bake for about 15 minutes extra, but the skewer test works fine.
