Vegan Tea Bread

This simple recipe is great because it doesnt require much stuff or effort, its very cheap to make, and once youve tried it you can experiment with it easily!  Try adding your favourite nuts, seeds, candied fruit, hempseeds, or anything else you fancy!

You will need: 

all measurements are in cups, dont panic - its all about proportions, if you just use the same cup then itll work :)

1 cup of tea (any tea is nice, earl grey, redbush etc)
1 cup of raisens (or sultanas/currents/mixed peel)
2 cups of flour (self raising, or add 2 teaspoons of baking powder)
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon mixed spice


1. Put the kettle on and make 2 cups of tea.One of them is for you, dont add milk to the other one (but you can stir in a spoonful of honey if you want to)

2. Add the raisens to the cup of tea, and leave until the tea goes cold.

3. Next, add the flour, sugar, baking powder and spices to the tea mixture and stir well until all mixed together

4. Line a loaf tin with baking paper, and spoon the mixture into the tin.

5. Bake in the oven at Gas Mark 4 for about 45 minutes.

Depending on the depth of your tin it might need slightly more or less time, best way to check is to poke a knife into the cake, if it comes out clean its done, if it come out with raw cake mix on it then it needs more time!


  1. This must be the cutest recipe I have ever read!
    I made this a couple of days ago, tweaked it somewhat - would it be alright if I shared my tweaked version? I would of course link to your original recipe, and make sure people knew you were the source. :)

  2. I went ahead and shared my tweaked version - and linked to you. Adding a linkto the post, just let me know if you want me to take it down! :)

    1. Great reworking of the recipe! Im glad you enjoyed it and always happy to be reposted!
