Low Fat, Healthy Shredded Wheat Cake

Dietitian UK: Shredded Wheat Cake

When I was younger my mum found a Weetabix cake recipe and it was one of those recipes I really remember, partially because it was a little unusual and partially because I loved it. My mum-in-law also used to make a great All-bran loaf so my husband tells me. So when faced with a large box of shredded wheat that were bought by accident I decided to try them out in a cake.

Now as this contains wheat I can’t eat it but I have tried this out on my taste testers with good results. In fact half the cake went in one day!
