1/2 pint cold tea
8 ounces dried fruit (raisins, currants, and citrus peel)
1 pound flour
4 ounces soft brown sugar
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 egg
1 Tablespoon milk


Marinate the dried fruit in the tea overnight. Put the flour, sugar, and nutmeg in a bowl. Beat the egg and milk together; stir into the flour mix, adding the fruit with enough of its tea marinade to form a stiffish dough. Turn it into a loaf tin lined with buttered paper, and bake for 1-1/2 hours at 300 degrees. Store at least 2 days, well wrapped, before slicing.
