It tastes a lot better than it sounds :biglol: and is the easiest recipe ever.

It's a firm favourite here (which is why I have to make 3 at a time )



For each cake put one cupful each of:
All Bran
Sugar
Fruit (I use sultanas)
and milk

leave overnight or for a few hours then add a cupful of self raising flour and a few walnuts.

Place in a greased loaf tin and bake for about an hour at 180 degrees-ish

Cool on a tray and taste with butter

While we were cooking them our next door neighbour called round with a sample of her cooking - a blackberry and apple pie



Yum yum

wow, and virtually fat free too - well up until you butter it of course - will be trying that one.

Kaz, do you think you could use soya milk to make it vegan?

you can make it with any liquid really, I make it for work and varie it with orange juice, cold tea and milk as I feel like it, the liquid is really just to soften the bran so it can be mixed in well.

Giving it a go tomorrow. I've got all the ingredients from Freecycle.
(Borrowed from work)

PS. I'll take it all back when I've finished.

Anyone got any ideas for Nutella?

Grandma Bodger's bran cake takes some beating. Stuffed with dates and walnuts and plastered with Lurpak, it's absolute heaven. With her quick recipe, done in the microwave flapjack as well,  I always leave her house a few pounds heavier than than when I arrived. (The lurpak is an addition of mine which she disaproves of.)

Very nice cake.
Now I know why Grace ate it all and let MY Tilly take the blame.

I make this cake regularly as an "every day kind of cake" but today have veered off course slightly - only about 1/3 cup of sugar and a good tablespoon or two of malt extract.

Cake currently cooling on wire rack
