Scottish Tea bread

TEA BREAD

I got this recipe from a newspaper (I think!) many years ago - it is a really nice cake to serve (buttered is better!) with a cup of tea in the afternoon - a Scottish tradition (the tea drinking, I mean!)

4 oz butter
1 cup of tea (a proper teacup, not a mug!) Make the tea strong, and do not add milk or sugar
8 oz sugar;
8 oz mixed fruit;
8 oz self raising flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp mixed spice
1 large egg (lightly beaten)

Put butter, fruit and tea in a saucepan. Melt slowly, then bring to boil and simmer for two minutes.
Cool. Sift dry ingredients then add cooled fruit/tea/butter mix with the egg. Mix well.

Bake in a loaf tin at Gas mark 4 for about 1 and a half hours. Until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the deepest part of the loaf.

When cool, serve sliced and buttered.

Ishmel - Is this what's called 'Tea Brack'? I have a similar recipe with that name, and it's wonderful!

Brack is the Irish name for it, I believe!

There has been many an argument between the Scots and the Irish about the origin of certain dishes! They often have slightly different names, but are essentially the same dish. 8)

There are arguments between the Scots and Irish about EVERYTHING!
