Blue Peter Tea Bread by Nigel

This is a recipe I got off Blue Peter in the mid 1980's and first made with my grandmother.  It is a fat free firm tea bread, and very simple to make.  The cup used is not a typical kitchen measuring cup, but a teacup (rather than a mug).  Lovely sliced with a bit of butter on it.  You can add spices or use earl grey tea for an alternative.


  • 2 cups raisins

  • 1 cup sugar (soft brown is best, but you can use any)

  • 1 cup hot strong black tea

  • 2 cups self-raising flour

  • 1 egg


  1. Put sugar and raisins in bowl. Pour over the hot tea, and leave to soak for 15 minutes.

  2. Stir in the flour.  Beat in the egg.

  3. Put in a two pound loaf tin, and bake in a preheated oven at 190C until a skewer comes out clean (about 45-50 minutes).
