I have had a bout of cake-making recently. I thought I would post the recipe as a public service, because I have been told that not only is it very tasty, but it can also be, er, helpful, due to the bran content :). And I thought that Doris in particular might be interested ...
Put in to a bowl:
- 1 cup of bran flakes
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 cup of mixed fruit or currants or sultanas
Cover and leave to stand overnight.
In the morning:
- Beat an egg and mix it in
- Fold in a cup of self-raising flour
Bake in a medium oven for forty minutes or so or until a knife comes out clean. I find it normally singes a bit around the edges before the middle is done, but I quite like that :).
