Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350º F.

Step 2

Pour 2 cups hot Earl Grey tea over raisins and set aside to soak.

Step 3

In medium bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices. Cut in butter until blended thoroughly.

Step 4

Add tea with raisins and stir until smooth.

Step 5

Pour into loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, when a tester inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.

Step 6

Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then remove loaf from pan. Stir together remaining tea with icing sugar and brush over loaf.

Step 7

Heat tea bag in lime juice and simmer for 10 minutes to infuse flavour. Remove tea bag and allow syrup to cool.

Step 8

Toss syrup with fruit and serve with tea loaf, garnished with mint leaves (tossed into salad) or pomegranate seeds for colour. Fruit salad can be prepared up to a day in advance (flavours will marry as it sits).
