Ingredients - Cake Mixture

2 Large Eggs
35g Chopped Walnuts
185g Self Raising Flour
¾ tsp Bicarbonate of Soda

You will need a 900g/2lb loaf tin, measuring 23x13x7cm, greased and lined.

  • Place all the ingredients for the fruit mixture in a saucepan. Heat so that the butter melts and the mixture begins to bubble. Remove from the heat and allow to infuse for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 140c Fan/ 160c / Gas 3.
  • Remove the Tea Bags from the Fruit Mixture and tip the mixture into a large bowl.
  • Add the Eggs, Flour, Bicarbonate of soda and mix well, then fold in the nuts.
  • Put the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in the centre of the oven  for 60-75 minutes making sure you check the cake at 60 minutes. If it looks too brown and needs more time, cover the top with foil.
  • The cake is done when a skewer comes out clean.
  • When the cake is ready leave to cool completely in the tin before turning out.
  • You can decorate it with marzipan, or it is delicious spread with a little butter.

Enjoy with a cup of Twinings Christmas Spiced Tea.
