Weetabix Fruit Loaf


For those of you who were curious about the Weetabix cake I made. There are various recipes available online, but this is one which was passed to me years ago and that I have always used for making mine.
It's really delicious and so very simple to make, you don't even need to weigh out any of the ingredients.

You will need:

2 Weetabix
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of sultanas
1 cup of milk
1 cup of self raising flour
1 egg
1 cup = 250mls. I use a little less than a full cupful of sugar and don't notice any difference to the taste.

Place the Weetabix, sugar, sultanas and milk into a large mixing bowl and mix together. Cover and leave for at least an hour or overnight. Next stir in the egg and flour and mix well. Pour into a lined loaf tin and bake at 150°C for around 45 - 50 minutes.



I enjoy mine thickly sliced and spread with butter.

  8. Thank you for the recipe, Jules. I don't think I've seen weetabix in our regular supermarkets, but, maybe I'll be able to order it online (someday, when I graduate to ordering groceries online!)

    1. There are a few variations on this and not all recipes include egg. Once baked, it never lasts very long in this house. X

    1. I think my waistbands will be feeling a little tighter if I'm not careful. Perhaps the shortage of flour is no bad thing. X

  15. Thank you for the recipe. I started making a loaf last night, baked it this morning. Just sampled a slice with my cup of tea - it's light and fruity, very nice flavour. I used less than half a cup of sugar and found it plenty sweet enough. Easy to make, tastes good. Another big thank you!

  21. I used to make Slimming World Weetabix Squares. I'd forgotten all about them. As soon as I get some more milk (we're on milk rations until the delivery comes on Monday) I'm going to make some. Thanks for the reminder

  23. Your blog is such a calming place to visit. I'm glad you are here.

    That's the second time I've seen Weetabix cake this week. I've never heard of it before, and now I am so tempted to give it a try.
