Honey Tea Bread

I was planning to bake bread, since long, but because of the tight schedule, that was pending. I was browsing for inspiration and came across this Honey tea Bread, made a few changes and baked. It is a quick bread, soft, has got a mild taste of tea and is sweetened with honey. Perfect to serve with Tea or even breakfast.

What are the ingredients needed?

All purpose flour, 2 cup
Baking powder, 2 tsp
Baking Soda, 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon powder, 1/2 tsp
Salt, 1/4 tsp
Strongly brewed tea (black tea), 1/2 cup (at room temperature)
Milk, 1/2 cup
Honey, 1/2 cup
Freshly grated ginger, 3/4 tsp
Oil, 1/4 cup
Egg, 1 no
Vanilla extract, 1 tsp
Dried fruits, 1/4 cup ( I used raisins and cranberries, 50: 50)
Chopped Walnuts, 2 Tbs

How it is made?
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. 
  2. Prepare the loaf pan by greasing and flouring it and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder and salt.
  4. In another bowl combine milk and tea and beat in the egg, honey, vanilla extract and oil.
  5. Add this mixture to the flour mixture and gently mix them.
  6. Finally fold in the dried fruits, nuts and grated ginger till they are fully incorporated.
  7. Pour the batter to the prepared pan and bake for 45- 50 minutes, till the fork inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  8. Remove from the oven, let it cool for 10 minutes and remove from the pan.
  9. Let it cool completely before slicing them. 
  10. Slice, Serve and Enjoy.
