Based on a recipe from World War II, when rations were scarce in Britain, this English tea bread recipe contains no butter, oil or eggs yet tastes astoundingly rich, says Louisa Stephenson of Ontario, Canada. We agree. For a variation, add nuts and dried cherries or any other kind of dried fruit such as figs, pineapple or cranberries. This loaf slices more easily the day after baking.
- Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour 9×5-inch loaf pan.
- Mix All Bran, brown sugar, milk and fruit together in large bowl, and set aside for 10 minutes until bran becomes mushy.
- Add flour, baking powder and baking soda; stir to combine completely. Spoon into loaf pan.
