My Mum's Malt Loaf

If you like the Bran Loaf you'll love this Malt Loaf. It's very similar and just as easy.

I found this recipe on an old stained sheet of note paper covered in splashes with notes on the back. Her handwriting and the information on it took me back 40 years. Those were the days!


1 cup All Bran
1 cup mixed dried fruit or just raisins
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp Ovaltine

1 cup milk (she probably used full fat, but semi-skimmed is fine, I'm assured)

- Mix together and stand over night.
- Then add 1 cup self raising flour and mix well.
- Glace cherries and a tbsp of marmalde can also be added here.
- Cook in a greased loaf tin for about 1 hour 10 minutes at 180C/375F.

Serve sliced with butter.
