A scrumptious cake made from Weetabix and dried fruit!
Member Name: 02woodc
Advantages: Not to be a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang fan, but this is truly scrumptious.
Disadvantages: You may make so much you forget you need them for breakfast!
See, now I've always enjoyed eating Weetabix, whenever this cereal was in our cupboards I would be the one in the family to slowly munch away through the days. This was a few years ago and since then I have barely touched them. Last week my aunt gave me a recipe for a Weetabix cake, a simple and easy to make cake thats awesome and really does hit the spot. If you like the sort of taste that malt loaf gives then you would like this.
1 Cup Dried fruit (any will do)
1 Cup of Milk
3 quarters of a cup of Sugar
Place these bits into a bowl in that order and mix them together, breaking apart the weetabix. Once you've mixed it all quite well leave it to soak for about an hour.
Once soaked and squidgy, give it another stir and slowly add 1 Cup of self raising flour. Making sure that the mixture doesn't get too dry, if it does, add a slight more milk.
Once fully mixed in place the mixture into a small overproof tin, such as a loaf tin and cook in a preheated oven at 160 degrees C for 2 hours, making sure that the cake is cooked throughout.
When its done, check it using a cake tester to see if it needs more time and if not, let it cool down slightly and enjoy!
It's quite a simple recipe and it's something I will be making alot of in the future, so I thought I would share it with you all! It's not just about the Weetabix, it's what you do with it too.
Summary: A nice cake that'll keep well and tastes great.
