Earl Grey tea loaf


   75g raisins, 75g sultanas, 75g currants, 300ml Earl Grey, 250g
   self- raising flour, 200g brown sugar, 1 egg, cinnamon, nutmeg, butter, 
Teapigs make, without a doubt the best tea I have ever tasted - unlike most tea it comes in tea temples (little silk bags, not paper) and contains real tea-leaves (not dust). Gorgeous tea also makes gorgeous tea loaf so give Teapigs a try.

1) Soak the raisins, sultanas and currants overnight in 300ml of Earl Grey tea.

2) Add the flour, sugar, a beaten egg a teaspoon of cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg into a bowl and mix thoroughly. Pour in the tea and fruit and mix with a spatula until the batter is smooth.

3) Pour into a greased loaf tin and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes (or until a skewer comes out clean).
