Tea Loaf

IMG_2866This was a fun bake and was quicker than I thought it would be.

You mix together a dough, you let it prove for an hour then you roll out the dough, sprinkle the fruit and spices over the dough then roll it altogether and bake it.  Once the loaf has cooled you get to drizzle icing all over it and then you serve it with butter.

Did you know – Tea loaf is an English cake usually with cinnamon and fruit.  Tea loaf originally came from Yorkshire. The company called ‘Yorkshire tea’ used to make a tea loaf but they stopped in 2001 because it wasn’t very popular.
