Lactose free tea loaf

I made this Lactose free tea loaf and it is absolutely delicious and so easy.  It has a texture of the malt loaf my mother used to make.  I might add that most of it dissapeared before I got a chance to photograph it.
3/4cup sultanas and the same of currants
1 cup strong black tea
13/4cups SR flour
1/4tsp salt
3/4cup brown sugar firmly packed
1 egg
2tbls marmalade

Put sultanas and currants in a bowl and pour the tea over, stand overnight
Add sifted flour and salt to fruit,mix well, stir in brown sugar.  Beat the marmalade and egg together, add to fruit mixture, mix well.  Pour into a lined and greased loaf tin and bake in a moderate oven for about 1 hour until cooked when tested.  Turn out onto a rack when cool.  If you are not lactose intolerent then it can be spread with butter.
