Tea Brack Recipe

Hi Ladies I have added the tutorial for the
Wine Bottle Gift Tag HERE

This is the Recipe for the 
Tea Brack


300ml Cold Tea
110g Sultanas
220g Raisins
55g  Glacé Cherries, halved & quartered
55g Mixed Candied Peel
200g Light Muscovado Sugar
225g Self Raising Flour
1 Egg, beaten
1 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp Cinnamon


Place  sultanas, raisins, cherries & candied peel in a bowl pour over the cold tea,
Cover, set aside and soak overnight
Preheat the oven to 180C 
line and grease a 2lb loaf tin
Add the sugar, flour, egg, nutmeg and cinnamon to the tea and fruit, mix well ensuring everything is well incorporated.
this is quiet a wet mix when all mixed together, so don't panic, it works everytime, and is beautifully moist.
Transfer the mixture to the loaf tin
Bake in the oven for 1 hour and 20-30 minutes
Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack.
Serve in slices with butter 
this brack will keep for about a month stored in an airtight tin.
