Twiddley Tracy’s Tea loaf…deeeelishious

Twiddley Tracy, as the rumour goes, simply can’t help herself! Not only does she add the best twiddley bits to her sewn samples but when she teaches a class (or visits the shop) Tracy brings the most deeeeelishious  home baking with her. Tracy didn’t disappoint yesterday as she brought the most scrumptious tea loaf. Erika asked for the recipe which I have duly scrounged and it is here for all to poach and enjoy.
