I rarely have butter in the house (its my weakness, so best not to have any!) so I was very happy to find this recipe from the Leon cookbook. Apart from a bit of overnight soaking its a really quick cake. 375g dried fruit 250ml cold Earl grey tea (or any tea you like) 1 large egg 75g Sugar 250g Self raising flour
Soak the dried fruit in the tea overnight. Add everything else adding the flour 1 spoon at a time. Cook at 170 c for one hour.
