Method

  1. For the nicest results, it is best to soak the fruit overnight in the tea until it all becomes plump and swollen.

  2. The next day preheat your oven to 180°C and line a 2lb loaf tin with baking parchment.

  3. Add the egg, sugar, flour, spices, whiskey, yogurt, and the nuts to the fruit and mix with a wooden spoon. Scoop into the prepared tin and flatten the mixture. Bake for an hour and 20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. While it is still warm brush the honey over the top. Allow to cool in the tin.
