Malt Loaf

This is cake like, and not a bread.  Cornish Cream posted a link to this recipe,  from BBC Good Food.  I have adapted it to TMX and also made some small changes to the method and ingredients.
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.
