A lovely, slicing fruit loaf. Use any dried fruit you have. Cuts into 10 slices at 9p a slice

Fruit Loaf

250g self raising flour
190g raisins
125g sugar
125ml vegetable oil
50ml milk
1 egg, beaten
Put some oiled greaseproof paper in the bottom and long sides of a 2lb loaf tin
Heat the oven to 180 fan
Stir all the dry ingredients together.  In a separate bowl/jug, stir  the oil and egg together.  Combine the two and pile into the lined loaf tin
Bake for 50-60 minutes until a skewer comes out clean

Cuts into at least 10 slices (when cold, very difficult to cut when still warm, which is when my DP tends to want it – he is so impatient J)

Variations

The dried fruit can be absolutely anything that you want to use
A bit of orange or lemon zest would be lovely
How about a tsp of cinnamon, or mixed spice
Replace some of the flour with a bran based cereal. I had some stale bran flakes for instance and used them up nicely in one of these
If you have any, wholemeal flour is delicious in this
