There's always half a bag of dried fruit leftover from cooking so why not try this easy recipe to use it up. Serve on its own or toasted with butter.


  • 1 heaped cup of bran or bran cereal
  • 1 heaped cup caster sugar
  • 1 heaped cup mixed dried fruit
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 heaped cup of self-raising flour


  1. Put the cereal, sugar and dried fruit into a bowl and mix together.
  2. Stir in milk and leave to stand for 1hr.
  3. Sieve in the flour, mix well and pour mixture into a well greased 1lb loaf tin. Bake in a moderate oven 180C/350F/gas 4 for 90 mins.
  4. Take out of tin and allow to cool on a cooling rack.

I made this using oat bran and gluten free flour and Yum Yum, a little heavier but a great cake. Also great as a pudding with cream or custard.
