Low Fat Fruit Tea Loaf
There is no fat in this recipe, only that from the egg.  Experiment with lots of different types of fruits and find your favourite combo. Raisin and crystallised ginger is popular, as is date and apricot. Bake this whilst cooking other things  in your oven like your roast lunch and this saves on energy.  

250g Dried Fruit (anything you like)
300ml brewed tea - Earl Grey is nice
55g brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
225g self-raising flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. mixed spice (optional)

1. Soak the fruit in the tea and sugar so that it softens and plumps up (4hours is best)
2. Pre-heat the oven to 170oC/325F/GM3 and grease your loaf tin.
3. Add the beaten egg, flour and baking powder/spices to the soaked fruit and mix well.
4. Pour into the loaf tin amd bake for 1 hour or until a skewer comes out clean from the centre. 
5. Leave to cool for 10 minutes before turning out.
