DS loves fruit cake/fruit loaf and I have a load of dried fruit left from Christmas - can you recommend a recipe?

Thank you - i'll have a look. I recently tried levi roots ginger cake which just ended up dense and soggy and this tea loaf which ended up rock hard!

Sorry about bad link etiquette.

The cake is really good.

I used Fig jam instead of marmalade. Really good with custard too!

this recipe is a nice [http://www.womanandhome.com/recipes/495830/cup-of-tea-fruit-loaf tea bread]]

have made all sorts of variations using different teas and then altering the fruit/spices

it says overnight soaking, but I've done it on the day with a couple of hours

makes lovely fruit toast too!
