Hello my foodies friends!
Today i’ll share a simple recipe of the perfect tea time fruit loaf. I used apples and blueberries as in the original recipe but you could use every seasonal fruit.
Do you know this book? I brought it from London a few years ago and it became one of my favorite bakery book.
So no french specialities today! Let’s have a nice cup of tea with this delicious fruit loaf. I didn’t change a lot from the original recipe. I just put 150g of sugar instead of 175g. And i added a few drops of vanilla (The best vanilla ever, brought by my mother from Tahiti! This vanilla extract is bakers heaven, and i’m the lucky baker daughter of a biologist mother who is working on… wait for it… vanilla!!! Isn’t that great? )
- 125g butter in dices
- 225g flour
- 1ts baking soda
- ½ ts baking powder
- 150g brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 apples
- some blueberries
- MIx butter and flour (+powder and soda) in the food processor to get some "sand". We say in french "sand the paste" = sabler la pâte
- Add suger and eggs
- In a loaf tin, spoon half of the paste.
- Add half of the fruits.
- Cover with the rest of the paste and decorate with the fruits.
- Bake for 1hour at 170°C.
If there is anyone like a food photographer stopping by, could you please tell me what is wrong with those photos? It’s so blurry where it’s not supposed to be… Arrggghhh food photography! So difficult!
