Dilmah Tea Loaf


As I've seen quite a number of Earl Grey Tea bakes on the internet so I thought I'll try to bake one with  Dilmah Tea instead.  I've been drinking Dilmah Tea for years and since it's on hand, I just used it in this bake.  To me tea is tea, only a different brand and a different flavour.  This is a very simple recipe, you don't need to cart out your mixer, all you've got to do is to just mix up all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, pour into a pan and bake.  It's that easy.   Minimum labour yet with a handsome reward ..... a delicious tea bread for your tea, breakfast or snack!

    1. I do switch the brands sometimes but still fall back on Dilmah. Maybe I should try Ahmad's Earl Grey too.
