Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

  • Eat Your Books

    Currants and raisins must soak in tea overnight. Can substitute pumpkin pie spice for mixed spice.

    This loaf is so unique and delicious! Just be sure to plan ahead because you need to soak the dried fruit in tea overnight (or, in my case, all day to bake in the evening).
