THE CUP OF TEA CAKE ( sometimes referred to as Brac)
To 1 cup of cold tea add 1 cup of dried fruit(chopped apricots,dates, mixed fruit, sultanas or my favourite,raisons)
Allow to soak for 30 minutes, then add;
1 cup SR flour ( wholemeal is nice)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp mixed spice
Opt walnuts ( to sprinkle on top)
I use a loaf tin, spray oiled and lined with a strip of Gladbake and cook in a 180 deg oven (160 fan forced) for 30 – 35 minutes, leave in tin 10 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack or serve warm with/ with out butter/spread.
Better eaten the day it is cooked but does freeze.
