This recipe for Bran Loaf comes from my gran’s recipe book, but to me it’s synonymous with my mum because she used to make it regularly when I was a kid. It’s a ridiculously easy recipe to put together – the recipe is done by volume, and requires equal parts of each ingredient (except salt). Using 1 cup, or 250ml, of each gives a decent sized loaf.
- 250ml self raising flour
- 250ml caster sugar
- 250ml dried fruit (e.g. sultanas)
- 250ml All Bran breakfast cereal
- 250ml milk
- A pinch of salt
First up, put the All Bran, milk, sugar and fruit together in a big bowl and give it a stir. Leave this for at least 2 – 3 hours.
Next, stir in the flour and salt until you have an even mixture. Pour it into a loaf tin and bake in the oven. My gran’s recipe calls for a “moderate” oven for 1hr 15mins. We went with 180C fan oven and it took about 45 minutes.
You must eat this sliced and smeared with butter. It’s fabulous.
My mum and my gran used to make this bran loaf for me when I was a little boy… best enjoyed with lashings of butter. #food #baking #homebakes #recipe #allbran #bran #milk #sugar #flour #sultanas #delicious #foodgram #foodgasm #foodporn #foodblr #foodblogger #foodgays #instagay #gaysofinstagram #imadethis
