Weetabix loaf cake

    21 hours

    Very, very quick and easy, only six ingredients and no fat either!! I sometimes ask people to guess what is in the cake as it tastes very good. Serve sliced with butter in the traditional tea-loaf style. Easy to make and freezes very well.

    Altered ingredient amounts. add 1 extra weetabix, soaks milk up a bit better.  -  06 May 2010


    Something else. when greased loaf tin sprinkle sugar so it coats loaf tin, caramelises sides and bottom of loaf making it crispy and sweet.  -  06 May 2010
