Hi, I was just off to start making some of this when I thought I would share it. It's one of my favourites, as it is quick, easy, cheap and really simple. It's also fat free, and quite low in sugar -
4oz (125g) All Bran breakfast cereal
4oz (125g) dried mixed fruit
3oz (75g) brown sugar
4oz (125g) self raising flour (or plain with baking powder added - I use this)
1/2 pint milk (300ml). You can also use soya milk - I often use this and it tastes no different.
Put the All Bran, sugar, fruit and milk into a mixing bowl, cover and leave to stand for 1 hour.
Then add the flour and stir in.
Pour into 2 x1lb loaf tins (lined with baking paper, or greased and lightly floured)
Bake at 180C 350F Gas Mark 4 for 40- 50 mins
Cool in the tin for about 20 mins then turn out.
This tastes better next day. You can store this in an air tight container for about a week. Have with or without butter.
Word of warning - I thought this would make nice muffins as it is very moist, but they don't cook well in small amounts - they dry out quicker and go hard.
