Fruit Tea Bread (Quick 'n' Easy)

Today I am trying to use up all the dry fruits that is lying in the pantry and hence in search of recipes and come across this in my wonderful Four Ingredient Cookbook. This is easy to make with very less ingredients and in no time. That is sounded perfect for my Saturday morning when kids are still in bed. The most of sweetness in this bread or desert comes from the fruits and it will sure be a healthy snack for your little one's also. It was little sweet for me, But Who cares for me, when it comes to Sweets ;-). My rest of the family enjoyed every bit of it.

When I ever i used to see the recipes for Tea Breads and Coffee Cakes, I used to think that it would be made of Tea or Coffee. And I came to know that they are good accompanier for Tea or Coffee and hence the names Tea Bread and Coffee Cake. It sounded funny, Just sharing with you if someone are like me. ;-)

Source: Four Ingredient Cookbook
Luxury Mixed Dried Fruit - 2 cups
Boiling Water - 2/3 cup
Raw Sugar - 1/3 cup and 1 Tbsp
Egg - 1
Self Rising Flour  1 1/2 cup

How to Make It:
1. Place fruit in a medium bowl. Add 2/3 cup of boiling water and let stand for 30 minutes.
2. Beat 1/3 cup of sugar and egg into the fruit
3. Sift the flour into the bowl and mix well until combined.
4. Grease the 1 lb loaf pan, and pour bread batter into loaf pan
5. Level evenly and sprinkle the 1 tbsp sugar on top.
6. Bake the Loaf Bread at 350F in the oven for 50 minutes
7. Once it is done take it out and let it stand for 10 min on wire rack or until cook
8. Then slice it and serve it with hot chai or coffee in the afternoon.
9. Store it in the airtight container and it lasts for 1 week outside at room temperature.

  • I have used Tropical Fruit ( Papaya, Apricot, Pineapple, Berry Mix, Banana) to get beautiful colors
  • This is very good snack for kids
  • Most of the sugar content is from fruits and the sugar is we used also RAW, it is healthy compared any other sweets.
