I am really enjoying.........

joining in with Simone's Friday Cake Bake and Fi's 20 minute craft, except mine sometimes goes on all evening! More about the 20 minute craft when the next project is finished!

Today I baked another one of these. This time I used Tetley Tea and I can say it was just as nice except the fruit sunk. I do have a lot of trouble with that - any tips anyone? I do sift the flour. I did try and disguise the fact with lots of butter but not very well!

I would like to say thank you to Simone for my lovely PIF gift.

These minature Irises are the most beautiful shade of violet
and the photograph does not do it justice.


  1. Hello,
    just popped in to see how you were getting on with your 20 minute project...
    never mind I'll be making that tea loaf tomorrow morning..thank you.

  2. I think we need few more hours in the day (even though we are superwomen!)
    I have to confess that I have not baked today..or crafted! I have good reason though and I did bake yesterday!
    Have a great weekend !

  3. Thank you for the PIF mention Julie. I hope you liked them. I love tea bread too! When I made my cherry and sultana cake I coated the fruit in flour before adding to the mixture and the fruit didn't sink. Hope this helps.x

  4. Hi Julie! Love your Irises, can't wait for Spring!
    What a lovely package you received from Simone!
    Have a good weekend! xxxxx

  5. you can try coating the fruit with flour before adding to the mixture to prevent it from sinking.
