  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease a 6cm-deep, 10.5cm x 22cm (base) loaf pan. Line with baking paper, allowing a 2cm overhang at both long ends.
  2. Place flour, spice and pinch of salt in a bowl. Add butter. Using fingertips, rub butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in sugar and fruit medley.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a skewer inserted in centre comes out clean. Stand in pan for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Serve with butter or margarine spread.
