Preparation: 40 minutes

Mixed dried fruit
Chopped mixed peel
Soft, dark brown sugar
Matthew's Preserved Three Fruit Marmalade
Self-raising flour (Or gluten-free if needed)
Butter (Or dairy free alternative) - (Melted)
Add the apple, dried fruit, mixed peel, and stir in all the remaining ingredients, except the butter.
Adapted from my mother’s Farmhouse Cookery book. This works just as well with Gluten-Free bread.
Easily adaptable to dairy free

Enjoy warm on its own, or with custard, or just a good cup of tea.
