"This is a simple, easy fruit loaf which is made from real tea (used to be tea-leaves many years ago, which you strained the liquid from) now tea bags are easier and less messy. The fruit (sultanas or raisins) is soaked in the hot tea for a few hours or overnight then flour, sugar, and egg is added and baked. Different flavors can be added like orange marmalade, or ovaltine to give a malty taste to it. Nuts can be added also - excellent with walnuts or pecans. It is delicious served sliced - spread with cream cheese or buttered with a slice of cheese as a snack or just as it is."
