I do love a good simple easy and quick recipe that can be conjoured up withing minutes and then thrown in the oven with little or no preparation involved, but what comes out of the oven after baking could be seen as something that took a lot of hard work, time and effort, when in reality it was probably one of the most easiest recipes I've ever created.
So this is just that.
A easy, quick and very versatile recipe for a fruit bran loaf, that...wait for it...Has only 4 ingredients!
But that doesn't mean it's going to taste bland and dry, this loaf is so soft, squishy and moist and can be topped with almost anything that takes your fancy.
So let's get into the ingredients, as I mentioned before, there is only 4 (but this doesn't mean you can't add extras if you like...cinnamon, nutmeg, peanut butter, banana, the possibilities are endless)
Today, I'm going to give you the simple recipe that can be adapted to suit your taste buds.
1 cup (250g) bran
1 cup (175g) dried mixed fruit
1 1/2 cup (375ml) milk
1 cup (175g) self rasing flour
Preheat oven to 180 degrees
Combine bran , fruit and milk in a bowl & leave to stand for 15 mins until the bran has softened
Add flour and mix well until combined, (the mixture should be lumpy but that is compleatly normal don't worry)
Spoon the mixture into a paper lined loaf tin and bake for 40 mins or until cooked through.
(Do the toothpick test after 30 minutes)
Cool on a wire rack and serve sliced with butter, jam, marmalade, peanut butter, sliced bananas....or anything else you like.
