350g mixed fruit
200g soft brown sugar
270g self raising flour
3/4 pint freshly made tea

Pour the tea over the fruit and sugar, and leave to soak overnight (or longer if you like tea).
Mix the flour and beaten eggs with the fruit and sugar and cook in a greased 2lb loaf tin in a pre-heated oven at 150ºC (300ºF, Gas Mark 2) for 1.5 hours.
Cool on a wire rack and serve sliced with butter.
