Advice & Tips when making a Malt Loaf​

  • Ensure that you mix the ingredients properly and there are no flour pockets; if you don't, you will have white flour pockets throughout the bake.
  • Be careful not to overmix the batter, as this creates gluten, causing the loaf to be chewy and tough.
  • If you underbake the loaf, it will sink in the middle.
  • If you overbake, it will be hard and dry.
  • Ensure the fruit pieces are consistent and distributed evenly throughout the batter; if the pieces are too large, they will sink to the bottom of the bake.
  • If you are using treacle or molasses in your malt loaf, warm the spoon first under a hot tap, this will allow it to slide off the spoon easily.
