spiced orange juice fruit loaf
A healthy spiced orange juice fruit loaf recipe to start the New Year. Quick and easy to put together. It also has the added benefit of no added refined sugar, and is fat free and dairy free too (but it is really good spread with French sea salted butter). 

1 1/2 cups chopped dried fruit (any dried fruit of choice; e.g. sultanas, cherries, apricots, cranberries)
3/4 cup fresh orange juice & zest of 1 orange
1/2 cup hot brewed tea
1 tbsp honey
1 cup white plain flour
2/3 cup wholemeal flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp quatre epices (or mixed spice)
pinch salt

preparation time: 10 minutes (& overnight soaking time) 
cooking time: 60 minutes


soak the fruit overnight in the orange juice, zest, honey and tea. 

preheat the oven to gas 3/160C and grease/line a 2lb loaf tin

add the soaked fruit and any remaining liquid to a bowl. Sift in the flours, baking powder, quatre epices and salt and mix well

spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 60 minutes, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean. 

leave to cool in the tin for about 15 minutes before turning out and cooling on a wire rack. Serve in slices (with or without sea salted butter). Bon appetit.
