Mary Berry Walnut Teabread

Walnut tea loaf

I think most people know I have an all consuming love of a great cuppa.
But what to have with it?
Sometimes you want something a bit more nom nom nom that a digestive, but not as naughty as a chocolate Hob Nob.
So, I made this little beauty and actually got a nod and a ‘mmmmm’ from hubby. This is BIG let me tell you!
Also, if you bake it your house smells like a small English tearoom for hours.

I tell myself it’s healthy because there’s no fat in it *ahem*
So here you go, when of my most used recipes: Mary Berry Walnut Teabread (taken from Mary Berry’s Ultimate Cake Book)

100g granulated sugar
175g golden syrup
200ml milk
50g sultanas
225g self-raising flour
1tsp baking powder
50g chopped walnuts
1 egg, beaten

1. Put sugar, syrup, milk and sultanas in a saucepan and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved.
Leave to cool.

2. Put flour, baking powder and walnuts into a bowl and add the cooled syrup mixture with the egg.
Stir well until the mixture is smooth.

3. Pour into a lightly greased 900g loaf tin (or be lazy like me and buy liners!)

4. Bake in pre-heated oven at 180 degrees C for 50-60 minutes. Cover the top loosely with foil towards the end of cooking if it’s starting to get too brown.
It’s ready if a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

5. Leave to cool in the pan then turn out on to a wire rack.
Ta da.
