    Irish mixed fruits tea cake : what kind of tea bag to use?

  4. melanie says:

    hi, as for ingredients A do we still use back the soaking liquid (tea & brown sugar)? do we need to dredge the fruits with flour so that it dont sink at the bottom?

  5. Jo-Ann says:

    I would like to know what type of dried fruit you used. I am now soaking cranberry, figs, dates apricots and kiwis for the green color)

    • In this recipe, my contributor used dark and golden raisins, green cherries, etc. You can mix your own fruits like currants, raisins, dry apricot. etc. No limitations. As long as gathered together to make the required quantity.

  6. jennifer says:

    Do you chop the fruit before or after soaking?

  7. How much is 150ml for the tea? is that around 3/4 cup? I wanted to try and make this for Christmas.

  8. Tan says:

    what can I replace if I don’t like tea ?
