Genius fruit loaf toasted

Smells like:
Hot cross buns
Sweet and spicy

Tastes like:
Sliced hot cross buns
Delightfully cinnamony
The bread is standard Genius bread texture (lacking big holes this time)
The raisins taste like they may have caramelised in the toaster, they are sweet, slightly sticky and make a nice contrast to the firm bread.
There is a spicy but not at all hot taste to the bread.

Price:
£2 in Tesco

Conclusion:
I enjoyed this bread and I would probably buy another loaf for a treat.
The taste is good and I believe people who like hot crossed buns would enjoy this loaf.
You could eat this with a sweet or savoury topping.
I do however think its an awful shame that Genius use egg in all their breads.

4/5 – yum
