Its no secret that I enjoy baking cakes, in fact when I am feeling stressed I can often be found baking cake very late at night !!
A life time ago in another life I baked many cakes for many RAF coffee shops, including this one.
Luckily for me now,I know lots of people who like eating my cakes, else I might be a little larger than I am. I don’t like posh fancy cakes but good easy wholesome one’s and the occasional Guinness Cake that i still have to make for the girls at work ….
An old favourite recipe is A weetabix cake, many people have asked me for this recipe, including the Cambridge Rambling Club Ladies, after i took one for after our Saturday walk, so I thought the easiest way was to put the recipe here on my blog
half a pint of skimmed milk
8oz soft brown sugar
8oz mixed dried fruit
1 egg beaten
8oz S/R flour
Place weet-a-bix. milk.sugar and fruit in a bowl and leave to soak over night.
add egg and flour then mix well.
bake in a lined 2lb loaf tin for aprox 1 hour, until skewer comes out clean at 180
Best left for 24 hours before eaten and keeps well for a week
