World War II (accidentally vegan) fruit loaf

Fat free, accidentally vegan fruit loaf

This recipe popped up on a facebook page I follow...Accidentally Vegan, and was kindly shared by a lady called Rachael who found this as a World War 2 rationing recipe which was accidentally vegan. I tweaked it a little, and was lovely still warm, with lots of Flora Butterly on, but before that was fat free!

I used a 2lbs loaf tin to bake in and lined with greaseproof paper to excess so the loaf pulled out easily.


1 cup of water

1/2 cup dark muscovado sugar

1/2 cup demarara sugar

1 cup of raisins

Dairy free spread for greasing

1tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp mixed spice

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 bicarbonate of soda

1 1/2 plain flour


Put the water, sugar, raisins and spices into a pan and bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 minutes and leave to cool

Preheat the oven to 175C

Grease and line a loaf tin

Mix the rest of the ingredients into a bowl and add cooled raisin mix and mix well. Transfer to the prepared tin and bake for 40 minutes. Check that a skewer comes out clean, if not cook for a further few minutes

Remove, cool slightly, then slice and serve with dairy free spread
