  4. Looks delicious. I've just been experimenting with tea loaves...and made an apple one, was mulling over a possible cherry one (the kirsch cherries are in the cupboard waiting) so will give this a go, and may even try experimenting with some tea in one. Love loaf cakes as they are so moist. #Recipeoftheweek.
