A delicious tea time treat our Spiced Fruit Loaf is packed full of dried fruit and it is easy to prepare! It freezes well too. A great one to feed a house full at Christmas time.  Decorate with some springs of holly!


225g sugar
250ml water
110g margarine
340g dried fruit mixture (you can also add some nuts if desired)
260g self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
4 teaspoons Sweet Spice Blend
2 eggs

Put water, margarine, dried fruit and sugar into a pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes. Allow to cool slightly. Add eggs and other ingredients and mix well. 

Place mixture in a lined or greased 2lb loaf tin (or divide mixture between 2 lined 1lb loaf tins). Bake in pre-heated oven for 45 minutes at 180°C / 160°C Fan. 

We suggest making double and freezing one so you have something to hand for those unexpected visitors!
