I stumbled upon this recipe when I wanted to bake something sweet but dairy free and didn’t have that many ingredients at home to chose from. We always have weetabix in the cupboard. Of course we do! That’s my toddler’s number one breakfast choice. 🙂
Many thanks to “mamacook” for the recipe, this has been a huge success in my household. It goes very well with a cup of tea (or two). 😀
- 2 weetabix
- 350 ml decaf tea
- 110 g soft brown sugar
- 100 g sultanas or other dried fruit you have handy
- 1 egg, beaten
- 225 g self raising flour
- 1 tsp mixed spice
Serve: many 🙂
Preparation: 30 minutes
Baking time: 1 hour
- Crush up the weetabix. Mix it with sugar and sultanas and soak in the tea for at least half an hour.
- Preheat the oven to 160 °C.
- Sift the flour and mixed spice into a mixing bowl. Add the beaten egg and a cupful of the weetabix-tea. (You can create a well in the centre of the flour to add the egg and weetabix. This helps to stir the liquid into the flour to make a smooth mixture.) Stir until you get a smooth mixture and gradually beat in the remaining weetabix-tea.
- Pour the mixture into a silicone loaf or a lined loaf tin.
- Bake for about an hour until a pin inserted in the cake comes out clean.
This is what it looked like after I took it out of the oven. It cracked a bit on the top but it didn’t spoil its deliciousness. 🙂
