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!
So here is a wholegrain, healthy recipe for you to try out on your family. Great for growing kids.
- 3 shredded wheat
- 1/2 pint milk
- 2 medium apples
- 50g sultanas
- 200g self raising flour
- 100g sweetener or sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Soak the shredded wheat in the milk for 5 minutes.
- Grate the apples and add these to the mixture (no need to peel them), then add in the sultanas and stir. Leave this to soak whilst you grease and line a loaf tin and put the oven on to Gas Mark 5.
- Stir in the flour, sugar/sweetener, egg and cinnamon.
- Pour into the loaf tin and bake in the middle of the oven for 30-40 minutes.
