Grandma meets Nigella

Fruit Harvo

I’m a really big fan of Nigella Lawson, and while doing some research for Grandma's book, I was delighted to find that  one of Grandma’s recipes Fruit Harvo from the original edition of Grandma Abson's Yorkshire Recipes I produced in 1981 had been posted on Nigella’s website. The author describes it as ‘A nice sticky malty loaf, which keeps well’. It’s actually a teabread, made with sultanas which you can spread with butter. The writer comments on measuring using cups rather than scales. Don’t be afraid of using cups as measurement. This old-fashioned technique really works. Click here to see the recipe.
