Tea Loaf - Dairy Free & Refined Sugar Free

Tea Loaf - Dairy Free & Refined Sugar Free


Tea loaf is my go to recipe when I want to make something quick, simple and scrumptious to take into work on a staff meeting day. It always goes down a treat. This tea loaf is made using black tea, and is free from refined sugar and dairy. It's spongey, sweet and ticks all the boxes as a mid morning treat to be enjoyed with a cup of tea.

  1. Pop the kettle on! The first port of call with this recipe is to make a medium to strong strength black cup of tea. Your normal English Breakfast tea will do.
  2. Place the cup of sultanas into a bowl and pour the tea on top. Leave to cool and for the sultanas to soak up the tea.
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 180'c.
  4. In a mixing bowl add 2 cups of self raising flower, 4 tbsp of olive oil, 2 eggs, 8 tbsp of honey along with the sultanas and tea once cool. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Pour the mixture into a tin lined with greaseproof paper.
  6. Pop in the oven for 40 minutes or until golden brown and cooked in the middle.
  7. Once ready, remove from the oven and leave to cool on the side.
