Makes 2 x 2lb loaves

An easy mix non-fat loaf cake (unless you slather a slice with butter!) You need to start the night before

Line 2 2lb  loaf tins with greaseproof paper or paper liners.
Put 450g of mixed fruit In a bowl
Pour over 300ml boiling water with 2 tea bags, a capful of whiskey and 150g light brown sugar.
Make sure the teabags are immersed in the water and leave overnight for the fruit to plump up.

The next day add:
450g SR flour
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 Tablespoon honey
2 eggs beaten
2 tablesp milk

Mix well together until there are no more traces of white flour and then divide between the two loaf tins.

Bake at 160 for an hour until well risen and browned on top and there’s no trace of wet mix when tested with a skewer.

Leave to cool in the tins for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool. This cake is delicious sliced and buttered.
