IT IS DELICIOUS. It is low fat and you probably have all the ingredients.
150mls. hot black tea
300 g. dried fruit, I used raisins, sultanas, 3 chopped apricots and craisins.)
170g. malt extract, (liquid)
85g muscovado sugar, ( I used 80g raw sugar and 1 teaspoon of golden syrup)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
250 plain flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
Set oven to 150/130 FF C
Prepare 2 load tins or 1 large bread tin.,( I used a26 x 11 x 11cm bread tin), line with baking paper or silicon liner.
Soak fruit in hot tea
Heat sugar and malt in TMX REVERSE, 1 min./speed 1/ 50 o.
Add fruit and tea mix, mix REVERSE,1 min./speed 1
Add eggs, mix 20 seconds/speed 1 /REVERSE
Add flour mixed with carb soda and baking powder, KNEAD 10 seconds.
Pour into prepared baking tin, bake for 50 mins, or until cooked, turning tin round at 1/2 time.
Cool in tin for 10 mins, then turn out and cool/
Original instructions, say to brush with extra Malt. I don't like sticky anything , so left this out.
Beautiful served warm with good butter.
When cool wrap well .
Can be frozen but needs 5 hours to return to room temp.
Feel free to play around with the fruit. I think dried apricots and walnuts would be great.
