All about you | Weekend Malt Loaf Make this delicious Ideal for a teatime treat, this lovely recipe comes from


Bake Me a Cake as Fast as You Can, by Miranda Gore Browne, a finalist on the first series of The Great British Bake Off.


We tested this recipe in the office, thanks to Wendy who baked one for us and brought it in for us to try. It got an enthusiastic thumbs up from everyone who tasted it and soon disappeared!


The recipe makes one 2lb loaf


Ingredients 325g self-raising flour 175g Fairtrade dark brown sugar


Pinch of salt 250g Fairtrade raisins 1 tbsp black treacle 250ml semi-skimmed milk 3 tbsp clear Fairtrade honey, to glaze


Method 1 Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4) and line 2lb loaf tin with non-stick baking paper or use a loaf tin liner.


2 Put the flour, sugar, salt and fruit into a large bowl. Stir to combine – you may need to crush the sugar a little with the back of a spoon.


3 To measure out your treacle, dip a tablespoon into the flour, then put it straight into the treacle. Spoon the treacle into a measuring jug and then add the milk into the jug. Put the milk and the treacle into the microwave to warm for about 1 minute. Stir well, then pour on to the dry ingredients. Mix well with a wooden spoon.


4 Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes or until the cake is golden and springy to the touch. Remove from the oven and immediately spoon the honey over the top. Leave to cool in the tin for about 15 minutes before turning out on a rack to cool completely. Slice and spread with butter*.


* Some of our testers said it didn’t need butter as it was yummy enough to eat on its own.
