250 ml milk
250 gram butter
250 gram mixed dried fruits
60 gram cherries (chopped)
1 egg (beaten)
340 gram plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon mixed spice
How To Make This Fruit Loaf
Place sugar, milk, butter, dried fruits and cherries in a saucepan. Bring to boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add the beaten egg once this mixture has cooled down. Sift in the dry ingredients and combine well. Pour this into a greased 9 inch loaf tin. Bake in a preheated oven at 160 degree celsius for 60 to 90 minutes until risen. Leave this fruit loaf in the tin for 5 minutes before turning on to a wire rack to cool.
