Apple & Prune Tea Bread

This is a delicious fruit tea loaf that is perfect over Yom Tov ~ when extra friends and family arrive for an informal gathering.

Method

1. Line and grease a 1.2 litre loaf tin.

2. Place the margarine, honey and sugar in a saucepan and heat until melted. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.

3. Pre- heat the oven to 180 C/ 350 F.

4. Add the prunes, apricots, apples, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and eggs to the mixing bowl. Combine well.

5. Transfer to the prepared loaf tin.

6. Bake for 1 hour – 1 ¼ hours or until firm and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

7. Leave to cool in the tin. Glaze with a little warmed honey over the top.


To store, cover with cling film or place in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Hints 'n' Tips

It is also ideal when breaking the fast with a cup of tea. Packed with fruit and sweetened with honey, you will want to make this again and again as it becomes a great family favourite.

Granny Smith apples are a favourite of mine as they are crisp, juicy and do not oxidise as fast as other apples.
