This is the quickest and easiest fruit cake you'll ever make and it tastes great! Slice and serve with butter or freeze for a quick grab-n-go snack. It's cheap too. This tea cake costs $1.80 to make. I buy my baking ingredients from Aldi.
Fruity Tea CakeIngredients:
2 cups cold tea
2 cups mixed dried fruit
2 cups SR flour
Soak the fruit in the cold tea for 10 minutes. Beat in the self-raising flour. Pour into a greased and baking paper lined loaf tin. Bake at 180 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Let stand in tin for five minutes before turning out onto a cake rack to cool.
Chocolate Tea Cake: Use 2 cups chocolate milk to replace the cold tea.
Orange Tea Cake: Use 2 cups orange juice to replace the cold tea.
Spicy Tea Cake: Add 1 teaspoon mixed spice with the flour.
Sultana Cake: Add 1 teaspoon lemon essence with the cold tea. Use 2 cups sultanas to replace the mixed fruit.
