  • Recipe: Cinnamon & Apricot Muesli Tea Loaf
You'll Need:
    • 125g ready to eat apricots
    • 125g raisins
    • 1 Earl Grey teabag
    • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
    • Zest and juice of 1 medium orange
    • 100g light soft brown sugar
    • 250g self-raising flour
    • 100g Kellogg’s Puffed Spelt, Pumpkin & Sunflower seeds muesli
    • 1 large egg, beaten
    1. Lightly oil and base line a 1 litre loaf tin.

    2. Use a pair of scissors to snip the apricots into small pieces into a large bowl.

    3. Add the raisins, tea bag, cinnamon and pour over 250ml boiling water from the kettle. Add the oranges zest and juice, give it all a good stir and leave until cold.

    4. Preheat the oven to 180oC/Gas Mark 4 Fan 160C.

    5. Sift the flour over the soaked fruits, add the sugar, muesli and beaten egg and give it a good mix.

    6. Spoon into the prepared tin and bake for about 1 hour or until risen and golden on top - a skewer inserted into the centre should come out clean. Allow to cool for 5 mins in the tin, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
