I came across this lovely recipe the other day when I was in fact privy to taste a lovely piece of the cake itself. Jackie who is a friend of the family made this cake for my parents and sent along the recipe with it. Not only do I get to eat delicious cake, I also get to share the recipe with you guys too!
Pre heat your oven to:
180°C Regular Oven
160°C Fan Assisted
Gas Mark 4
Ingredients: These are given in normal mug sized cup sizes.
1 Cup (Mug) All Bran Cereal
1 Cup (Mug) Sugar (Jackie used half a mug of sugar)
1 Cup (Mug) Mixed Fruit
1 Cup (Mug) Milk
Mix all together and leave to rest overnight.
Add 1 Cup (Mug) Self Raising flour to the mix and blend together using a whisk.
Pour the contents into a lightly greased loaf tin.
Bake for approx 1 hour and 10 mins or until the cake is golden brown and a skewer comes out clean.
Remove from the oven then leave to cool for five minutes.
Pour from tin and leave to cool on a wire rack.
Enjoy with a pot of tea.
(I have been informed by my dad that spreading slices of the fruit loaf with Lurpak butter makes the cake extra scrumptious).
