Cake with benefits! One slice provides almost a third of an adult’s requirement of fibre, 11% iron and 8% calcium. This must also be the quickest and easiest tea loaf to make, no overnight soaking is required, simply mix in a saucepan before baking in the oven. It’s delicious warm from the oven, and when it’s cold, try it toasted, and you’ll never want it any other way. There is minimal added sugar in the recipe, only 2 spoonfuls of marmalade, the rest of the sweetness comes from the natural sugars from the dried fruits, which provide this host of nutritional benefits.
