Cereal Breads

The Supermarkets are all at it right now, so why not Grannymar. So to celebrate the holiday season we have two for the price of one. They are both very simple but require steeping the fruit and cereal overnight.

All Bran Health loaf

1 cup* All Bran
1 cup* soft brown sugar
1 cup* mixed dried fruit
Steep overnight in 1 cup of milk
Add 1 cup* Self Raising flour & mix well.

Pour into greased 2lb loaf tin and bake in a preheated oven at 160° for about 1½ hours or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cover the loaf with greaseproof paper for the last half hour.

* Deborah uses the following explanation for a cup measurement:

A cup is an American volume measure of eight fluid ounces. Use a mixing jug with fluid ounces on the side and fill to the 8oz mark, to measure one cup each of flour, sugar, fruit and All Bran. It’s a rough estimate that cannot be converted to grams accurately. Once you get used to using this system it becomes extremely easy!

Weetabix Loaf

3 Weetabix
6-8ozs mixed dried fruit
6-8ozs dark brown sugar
¾ pint of milk
Steep overnight
Add 8ozs Self Raising flour & mix well.

Pour into greased 2lb loaf tin and bake in a preheated oven at 160° for about 1½ hours or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cover the loaf with greaseproof paper for the last half hour.

Steph, I wonder if this recipe works with Ready Brek.
