This is a Irish tea bread and it is very good. I have also ADDED a little Bushmills Irish Whiskey to this when soaking raisins and peel mixture overnight. (small amount to the tea) so the tea still measures 1 cup. maybe 1 tsp to 1 tablespoon.
Soak raisins, peel,and sugar in the cold tea overnight in the refrigerator. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Sift flour and mix with soda and salt. blend in egg and the tea-raisin mixture. pour into well greased loaf pan as directed above. bake 1 hour or until firm to touch. allow to cool 10 minutes,and turn out onto wire rack to cool completely.
