    Cold Tea Loaf …

    2 C flour
    4 t baking powder
    1 C brown sugar
    1 C boiled tea
    1 C dried fruit
    1 t ginger
    1/2 t cinnamon (I’m not a huge fan)

    Place fruit in with the cup of boiled tea, leave for a few hours or overnight.
    Next day (or later on) mix all ingredients together and pour into a greased loaf tin and cook for approx 1 hr 10 mins @ 160 deg C.
    This not only freezes well but is STILL moist up to 5 days later (and oh so cheap to make!)

    2. Put milk, golden syrup, butter and eggs in a bowl and mix well.

    3. Sift flours, baking powder, soda and salt into egg mixture. Return husks left in the sifter with the wheat germ, and oat bran to the mix and mix well.

    4. Pour into loaf tin.

    5. Bake for 30 minutes or until loaf springs back when lightly touched.

    6. Leave in tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.

    When cool, slice and lightly butter.

    Apricot Loaf
    You will need:
    1 cup chopped apricots
    1 cup boiling water
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 tablespoon butter
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 egg, beaten
    1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence (I use extract)
    2 cups flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder

    (If making a Date and Walnut loaf – use 1 cup of each for the loaf – you will need to soak your Dates)
    Method
    Put apricots, boiling water, baking soda and butter into a bowl.
    Stir until butter has melted.
    Set aside for 1 hour.
    Beat sugar, egg, and vanilla into apricot mixture.
    Sift flour and baking powder into wet mixture, stirring just to combine.
    Pour mixture into a greased or lined 22 cm loaf tin..
    Bake at 180°C for 45 minutes or until loaf springs back when touched.
    Leave in tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack.
