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 my own.
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.
