A little something to share with you...

Second post today! Just thought I would share with you my quick cake. I'm not sure where the recipe came from, but I have a copy of it in my mother-in-law's handwriting that has got to be at least 20 years old!

Bran Loaf
1 cup of All bran
1 cup of dried fruit/ dates and walnuts/dried apricots
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of milk
1 cup of flour
1 egg

Combine the bran, fruit, sugar and milk in a bowl and leave to soak for at least an hour. Add the egg and flour and beat together. Put in a greased 1lb loaf tin and cook for about 1 hour at 180 C (might need a bit longer if not fan assisted). So quick and easy I made 2 this afternoon. I vary the fruit each time. These have dried apricots in one and a mixture of dried mixed fruit and pecan nuts in the other. Just wish you could smell them too!

Save a piece for me please - yummy yummy yummy. I love this recipe and make one similar - I really must have a go - but the thing is, I can't stop at one slice!

Have you tried it hot with custard or cream..............
