A very delicious and easy cake made with porridge oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins. This cake keeps well in an airtight container for elevenses or afternoon snacks.
Instead of one cake tin, you can use two 23cm round tins, or three 20cm round tins. Adjust baking time as needed.
Very easy to make the cake mixture. I've followed the recipe this time but will probably add other ingredients when I bake it again following some of the suggestions in other reviews-I like the idea of adding nuts and cherries to it! Once in the tin, I covered the top of the cake mix with Demerara sugar just before baking-Delicious! - 24 Aug 2013
I made this in two small loaf tins. However, I left out the caster sugar as I thought the amount of sugar was too much and it would be too sweet for my taste. I added extra fruit, i.e. glace cherries, chopped dates. I also soaked the oats in Earl Grey tea instead of water to add a different flavour. When I saw the mixture, I didn't think it would cook in 25 minutes - in fact, it took 45 minutes. It rose nicely and smells delicious - just waiting for it to cool so I can have a slice! - 16 Nov 2012
gorgeous very delicious and moist and satisfying however i added some chopped dates and cardamom powder for an eastern flavor and i substituted 70 gm of flour with whole wheat flour and the butter with oil for a healthier version - 08 Oct 2014
