This is, undoubtedly, the easiest little tea loaf that you could possibly come across. Such a delight that it's so simple, too!
1 cup sultanas/raisins
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup margarine
2 cups self raising flour
Heat the dried fruit, milk, sugar and margarine in a pan on the hob, but do not boil. Once the margarine and sugar are melted, allow the mixture to cool.
When it is cooled, gently mix in the flour and 1 egg.
Pour the mixture into a greased and lined 2lb loaf tin and bake in a preheated oven for 45 minutes at 180C.
Cool on a wire rack and - if you're anything like me - slice, wrap individually in cling film and freeze as soon as the loaf is cool enough. This makes an ideal lunch time treat!
