Roobois Fruit Loaf – Recipe

I love having something different for breakfast or brunch and especially the idea of a loaf that I can have warm with some butter melted on it.  I found this recipe over at Allyson Gofton, but since I am not much of a fan of black tea, or dried fruit mix I made some substitutes and came up with this enjoyable alternative

Roobois Fruit Loaf

1 cup of roobois tea
1 cup of currents
grated rind of 1 orange
1/2 cup honey
50 grams butter melted
2 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup rolled oats

Preheat the oven to 160 C and grease loaf tin
Put tea, fruit, orange rind, honey, and butter into a bowl
Stir until honey has dissolved then allow to cool
In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder and rolled oats
Make a well in the centre and pour in cooled fruit mixture
Stir until just combined then pour into loaf tin
Bake for 45 -55 minutes until golden brown and skewer comes out clean

  1. What a creative way to bake with tea! I’ve always found roobois to be a bit sweet (I suppose I’m the opposite from you!) but I think it would be so interesting to try in a cake. Did the flavour of the tea come out in the cake?
