My mum's fat-free tea brack

  • 10 mins to prepare. 1 hour to cook.
  • 12 slices or 1lb loaf
Perfect for Halloween, this virtually fat-free tea brack is a huge favourite in our house. It's so simple to make and although high in sugar, three quarters of that is from the fruit. I've used sultanas, but you can use any dried fruit you like.

Ingredients

  • ½ lb of self raising flour
  • ½ lb of sultanas, or any dried fruit
  • 1 mug of strong tea
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 oz of soft brown sugar

Each serving contains

  • Saturates 0.14g 1%
  • Salt 0.16g 3%

of your guideline daily amount

Method

Add the fruit and sugar to a bowl, cover with the tea and leave to soak overnight. The tea should just about cover all the fruit.

When you are ready to bake, turn the oven on to 150C and prepare and line a 1lb loaf tin.

Add the egg and flour to the fruit and mix. If the mixture is a little dry, add a little more tea until the consistency is that of a fruit cake mix.

Pour into the prepared tin and transfer to the oven.

Bake for 1 hour, checking the cake is cooked before removing from the oven.
