    Ingredients

    1 Duchy Originals From Waitrose Organic Assam Tea bag
    100g raisins
    225g Duchy Originals From Waitrose Organic Plain White
    Flour
    1½ tsp baking powder
    ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
    1 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
    50g Duchy Originals From Waitrose Organic English Butter with Anglesey Sea Salt
    75g light brown muscovado sugar
    1 medium Duchy Originals From Waitrose Organic British Free Range Egg, beaten
    3 ripe bananas, mashed
    75g walnuts, finely chopped

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC, gas mark 4. Butter and base line a 1kg loaf tin (about 21 x 11cm). Stew the tea bag and raisins together in a bowl in 150ml boiling water for 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, sift the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl. Stir in the nutmeg and rub in the butter until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.

    2. Discard the tea bag, then add the tea and raisin mixture to the flour mixture, along with the egg and the sugar. Mix in the bananas and  walnuts then spoon into the tin and level. Bake for an hour until a skewer inserted into the centre emerges clean. Turn onto a wire rack to cool. Wrap and store for 24 hours before cutting for the best flavour.
