We know a lot of people are baking right now- and that it's not always easy to find all the ingredients you need. However, this easy (vegan!) four ingredient tea bread is a cinch to make and is delicious toasted, spread with butter. You can also experiment with the tea you use, as any black tea will work: we used Masala Chai here for a gentle spiciness, but using Household Tea will make a more traditional tea bread; using Earl Grey will produce a lighter bread (I'd be tempted to add a gentle grating of lemon or orange zest to the recipe...) Have fun!
300g self-raising flour (can't find this? Add 2 teaspoons of baking powder to every 150g plain flour.)
150g caster sugar (if you can't find this, you can use granulated sugar- either whizz it briefly in a blender or make sure you stir the sugar in really well)
150g raisins or dry fruit
2 teaspoons of your chosen tea, brewed strongly in 300ml of boiling water
