Easy Peasy Raisin Loaf 💕
1 cup water
1 cup milk
Pinch yellow food colouring
500g selfraising flour
1 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1tsp whole aniseed
250 g raisins & some boiling water
Soak raisins in some boiling water until it swells. Once swollen drain excess water.
Once drained toss raisins in your dry ingredients and mix with a spoon (this coats the raisins and ensures that the raisins don’t sink to the bottom)
Whisk all the wet ingredients and add to the dry ingredients, mixing with a spoon.
Transfer to 2 greased loaf pans (greased with butter and sprinkled with some flour) and bake on 180 degrees for 45 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Once removed from oven brush with either some sugar water or some Apricot Jam.
