Fruity Loaf at Ally’s Castle

My friend gave me this old recipe from a Family Circle Magazine.

I have adapted it to suit my taste.

First of all I soaked 225g of mixed fruit in cold tea overnight

I then followed the recipe and added flour, sugar and beaten egg in that order. I also put in a dash of almond and vanilla essences.

Definitely no butter or oil required, trust me it works.

Note: My kitchen scales are not working so I winged it so to speak.

I had previously prepared a loaf tin, lined with baking paper.

Once spooned into the loaf tin I sprinkled over some walnuts.

Cook in a preheated 180 oven for one hour or until cooked.

It turned out really well. Moist and quite sweet. Next time I will measure accurately and maybe put slightly less sugar in it. ( Tomorrow I am shouting myself a new digital kitchen scale…budget one).

It looks a tad overbaked, but really it wasn’t.

Of course I had to do the taste test….delicious 😋😋😋
