Today I am reviewing
Genius Sliced Spicy Fruit Loaf.
If you are already missing hot crossed buns this could be the gluten-free loaf for you.
What is it?
We ate ours toasted with Vitalite spread

Thus suitable for :
Small Genius brown slices
Lots of visible fruit
Hot cross buns
Sweet and spicy
Sliced hot cross buns
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.
£2 in Tesco
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
