A simple recipe for gluten free vegan Fruit Loaf that uses the Free From Fairy's gluten free bread mix. A wholesome gluten free alternative to wholemeal bread. Such a versatile recipe with alternative ingredient options.
Prepare a 2lb loaf tin by brushing with oil (I use a handy oil spray) and then dust with flour.
Add the 150g of mixed fruit, orange zest and orange extract. Stir again until combined, then scrape into your prepared tin.
With a wet spatula tease the dough into the corners of the tin.
Next, brush the top of the smoothed loaf with a little extra oil.
Once the dough has risen almost to the top of the tin, remove the tin foil and turn the oven up to 230 degrees C (210 degrees fan/gas mark 7).
Bake for 40 minutes.
After 40 minutes brush the loaf with the marmalade and orange juice (mix these together first in a little bowl).
Pop back into the oven for the last 10 minutes to allow to brown (50 minutes in total).
With any remaining marmalade and orange juice glaze, brush the cooled/cooling loaf for an extra glaze effect.
Lemon and lime – add sultanas in place of the mixed fruit, then add the zest of two lemons and two limes. To glaze you could use lemon curd (not vegan) or a lemon or lime marmalade.
Cherry and chocolate – add dried cherries instead of the mixed fruit (you may want to soak the cherries overnight) then throw in a couple of handfuls of chocolate chips. To glaze use a cherry jam.
