Gluten Free Dairy Free Fruit Loaf


Another fruit loaf!….can you tell I like fruit cake yet?  Any excuse to include dried fruit all year round is fine by me.  This loaf is quick to put together and great to divvy up and take for lunches or have for morning tea.  With the added bonus of this being dairy free, more of those of you with intolerances can enjoy this too.  This is a lovely fruit loaf with the gentle flavour of tea, so if you haven’t tried soaking your fruit in tea before……do try it 😉.


350g dried fruit

1 cup GFSR flour

1 cup buckwheat flour

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup milk ( I use coconut)

1/2 cup slivered almonds

250ml hot tea

1 tbs of each of the following: nutmeg, cinnamon, baking powder, vanilla extract.

How To Do It:

Soak the fruit in the hot tea for about 30-60 mins.  Preheat oven to 180c and line a large loaf tin with baking paper.  In a large bowl combine the flours, sugar and spices along with the almonds.  Melt down the coconut oil, and combine it with the milk.  Mix in the wet fruit mix with the oil and milk.  Now add the fruit to the dry flour mix and stir really well.  Spoon into prepared loaf tin and bake for about 45-60 minutes.  Keep an eye on this as you may have to cover it with foil if it’s getting too brown.

Happy baking …Sarah
