Quick, easy, child friendly, scrummy loaf cake

I love cakes that are quick and easy, especially when Alex wants to help out, this is the easier cake ever!

I found the recipe here after buying all bran cereal thinking I liked it...then found out it tastes like cardboard!

All you need is...

1 cup All bran
1 cup Milk
1cup Self raising flour
1/2-1 cup of brown sugar (depending on your taste buds)
1 cup of dried fruit (today we just used sultanas as it's all we had)

We also added some mixed spice and I spinkled some demerara sugar on top of the mixture once in the tin.

Soak the All bran in the milk, leave for 5-10mins (must admit we did it for less), preheat oven to 170C, grease and line a loaf tin.

Add the sugar, flour and spices to the cereal and milk, give it a good mix and add the fruit (any dried fruit works well-whatever is in the cupboard), one last mix and bung it in the tin for and hour-hour and a half, can sprinkle with sugar on top should you wish too.

It's not the prettiest of cakes, and when mixing it you will think it looks a bit grey looking but looks can sometimes be deceiving! It is lovely warm with some butter on too.

Someone really licked the bowl clean!
