A recipe for Easy Bun Loaf

My brain still isn’t quite in gear, so here is a post I didn’t have to think about too much: my grandma’s recipe for Easy Bun Loaf. It really is easy (even I have made it with no disasters) so I hope that someone out there will try making it and enjoy eating it as well.


  • 4 oz currants and 4 oz sultanas, soaked overnight in a mug of cold tea (without milk!)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons of marmalade
  • 4 oz of brown sugar
  • 8 oz of self-raising flour


  1. Beat the egg and marmalade together
  2. Add the fruit (and the tea), sugar and flour and mix everything together
  3. Put the mixture into a greased loaf tin
  4. Cook in the oven at for 90 minutes at 150°C

That’s it!

  1. sounds soooooooo good!!!!

    Just out of curiosity….Do you know where I can purchase good quality foods online? I am now trying to order from online stores only because of various reasons…….can you help me with any suggestions??????

    There is only one place, out of all that I have tried that really stood out for true quailty, and that is Celebrityfoods.

    If you can help me grow my list of quality services or stores, where I can buy my food, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you!
