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!)#1711862BJB February 18, 2019 at 2:26 pm

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)
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.
