  • 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


    • Put the cereal, sugar and dried fruit into a bowl and mix together.

    • Stir in milk and leave to stand for 1hr.

    • Sieve in the flour, mix well and pour mixture into a well greased 1lb loaf tin. Bake in a moderate oven 180ºC/350F/gas 4 for 90 mins.

    • Take out of tin and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
