After the inevitable excesses of the festive period, how about a delicious cake that is not loaded with stuff that’s “bad for you” ?
Thanks to Ann for this (originally from the Rosemary Conley recipe book):
In a bowl, soak overnight 1 lb (400g) of dried fruit in 1 mug of hot black tea. (Fruit teas work well too. Can exchange some of the fruit for cherries for an alternative.)
Next day. Mix together in the tea/fruit bowl:
- 1 mug soft brown sugar
- 2 mugs self-raising flour
- 1 beaten egg
Transfer to loaf tin or round cake tin.
Bake on 160 deg C / 325 deg F or gas mark 3 for 2 hours.
