Granny Rose Homemade Plum Bread old Lincolnshire Recipe

Every christmas my mother gets busy in the kitchen making batches of my ‘Granny Rose’ famous Plumbread.

This recipe is very special to my mother as my ‘Granny Rose’ my mum’s mum died of breast cancer when my mum was only 27 yrs old. My mother has kept the most amazing hand written recipe book that dates back over 45  yrs full of old hand written recipes passed down through the family. On today’s Dreamwallstyle post I want to share this lovely recipe, some may already know it, if not then please do try it! My Granny always called this recipe ‘Plumbread’ to others it is called a ‘Tea Loaf’ as the sultanas are soaked in Tea. ENJOY!
