A Birthday Tea

I was up early this morning baking.  I had prepared the ingredients for another Fruit Bran Loaf (of which I have been enjoying a slice for breakfast each morning since I made the two loaf earlier in the week) and also a Fruit Tea Loaf.  I also made some cupcakes.

My friend was coming round for lunch and I was preparing a surprise birthday 'tea' lunch.

Fruit Tea Loaf.

6 oz currants
5 oz raisins
5 oz sultanas
1 teacup brown sugar
1 teacup cold tea
2 teacups self raising flour
1 beaten egg.

Make the tea and allow to go cold.
Mix fruit, sugar and tea and leave overnight.
Add flour and eggs and mix thoroughly
Bake at 180 C/360 F/ Gas Mark 4 for 1 1/2 hours

I made some little cucumber and cheese sandwiches and some egg sandwiches.

We had a lovely time eating and drinking tea!
