Recipe's preparation

  1. * Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees (fan forced), 170 degrees (non-fan forced). Grease one large loaf tin or two small loaf tins (I use two small ones - base measures 8cm x 17cm) and line with baking paper.


    * Place 180ml boiling water into the TM. Add 1 Earl Grey tea bag and let steep for about 5-10 minutes.


    * Take out tea bag and disgard.

    * Add the bicarb of soda and dates. Allow to stand for 10 minutes.

    * Add chopped apple.

    * Attach lid and blitz on Speed 4 or 5 for about 5 seconds. (Depends on how finely you want your dates and fruit chopped. You may want to scrape down and blitz for another 2 or 3 seconds.)

    * Add all other ingredients, doesn't really matter which order.

    * Mix on Speed 4 for about 25 seconds. You may need to scrape down and mix for another 5 seconds.

    * Pour mixture into your tin or tins and bake for 1 hour if 1 tin or 45 minutes if 2 tins.
