    Tricia Mendes's Note:

    A lovely moist tea loaf, from the kitchens of Donna Hay. I found it in a Sunday newspaper magazine and it has become a family favourite. It is very simple to prepare. Can't comment on how long it keeps or whether it freezes well - never been able to keep one for long enough to find out!
