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.
Makes one loaf tin - 10-14 servings depending on size.
