Everyday Brew Tea Loaf

When teapigs asked me to try their Everyday Brew I knew that I would use it in baking and not just drinking.

My hubby is a huge fan of my Settling Ginger Tea Loaf but I wanted to try something a little different. I have gone back using original black tea using teapigs Everyday Brew. With the addition of a lemon slice during brewing and mixed spice in the flour I have created a deliciously moist tea loaf which can be enjoyed at any time of day. Whether it be a mid morning snack, to accompany afternoon tea or as a snack, it goes perfectly with a cup of tea.

This is what I did...

Everyday Brew Tea Loaf


180mls boiling water
teapigs Everyday Brew teabag
1 slice of lemon
225g mixed fruit with candied peel
150g dark muscovado sugar
1 egg
225g self raising flour
2tspn mixed spices


1 - Place the teabag and slice of lemon in a cup and pour over 180mls of boiling water and leave to brew for 10 minutes to ensure maximum strength.

2 - Pour the brewed tea over the dried fruit and leave covered for at least 1 hour. This time will ensure that the fruit is nice and plump for baking.

3 - Pre heat the oven to 150C

4 - Place the fruit and any remaining liquid in a large mixing bowl, add the sugar and mix until the sugar has dissolved.

5 - Add the egg and mix.

6 - Add the flour and mixed spice and mix well.

7 - Line a loaf tin with baking paper and add the mixture.

8 - Place in the pre heated oven and bake for 1 hour.

9 - Once thoroughly baked remove from the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes in the tin before removing and allowing to cool completely on a cooling rack.
