Cold Tea Loaf...with variations...
Here's the original recipe:
Cold Tea Loaf
2 cups self raising flour
1 cup sultanas
1 cup sugar
1 cup cold tea
And here's my variations:
flour: 1 cup self raising flour, 1/2 cup almond meal, 1/4 cup rye flour, 1/4 cup spelt flour
fruit: chopped dates, chopped glace ginger, peeled and chopped apple
sugar: instead of 1 cup of sugar, I used 1/2 cup of brown sugar
tea: poured it over the fruit while warm to soften the dates
spices: cardamom and allspice.
Mix all together and bake 180'C/350'F oven for 30-40? minutes, depending on what size tin you use. The original recipe said a loaf tin, but I used a small baking dish, so it didn't take as long to cook.
Just experiment...that's what I do!
And then enjoy!!

re-watch episodes of Northern Exposure

If all else fails, cart in some wood, light the fire, and gaze into the flames...
And hope that it stops raining soon so you can go for a walk!!
