A delectable and easy Tea Loaf with aromatic and fruity flavours! The beauty of these British and Irish style Tea Loaves or Brack, is that they are nearly always fat-free, making them a tasty snack to have with an afternoon cuppa, and without the guilt! I have added ginger for a subtle kick, and I have discovered that if you soak your fruit in Darjeeling tea, it lends a wonderful flavour to the fruit, you can use any tea of your choice however. Remember to start this Tea Loaf off the night before you wish to bake it, as the fruit steeps in the tea overnight, making them plump and moist. This Tea Loaf freezes well (in slices) and it will stay fresh for a week in an airtight tin. NB: A note on ingredient conversions to US cups; The conversion rate to US cups is very dependant on what type of sugar and flour you use - there is a different rate for white flour and wholemeal flour, as there is for caster (superfine) sugar and granulated sugar. We use weights for measurements, and US cups rely on volume!
