Easy Cook Fruit Loaf Recipe
My mother used to make the most delicious cinnamon fruit loaf, yummy, moist and it always turned out just perfect. I remember coming in from school and smelling the aroma and could not wait until it was ready. Sitting peering through the cooker glass, willing it to hurry up and be ready. As winter approaches this is a perfect tea time cake to have waiting for those visitors over the holiday season.
Like many things our mothers hand down to us this is one that always stirs the emotions and sweet memories. From the moist inside of the loaf to the slightly crisp outside. There is nothing better than a slice of this yummy fruit loaf with a hint of cinammon and a cup of tea.
It is so easy to make and it has never turned out wrong. My husband refuses to buy shop bought fruit loafs or fruit cakes.
As even he is a master chef with this delightfully easy recipe.

I find the metallic loaf tins make a better loaf as when It is removed from the oven I like it to completely cool in the tin before removing it.
Did you know, You can also make fantastic loafs in a bread maker.
We love the easiness of these recipes.
