    Chef Mrs Bridges's Note:

    This is a dellicious rich fruit loaf. You can vary the recipe by using Earl Grey tea or replacing a little of the tea with brandy or sherry. This is a combination of my mother-in laws recipe and one I found in a supermarket cook book. it tastes a little like a Scottish fruit dumpling. No nee to butter this loaf as it is very rich.
