Easy Peasy Teabread

The best thing about this recipe is that it’s made from a bowl of cereal, so you can go and relax with your best pregnancy pillow right afterwards. Nice. It’s an old family recipe that my Mum used to make for us. It’s so tasty that everyone who tries it always asks me for the recipe


  • 1 mug Kellogg’s All Bran
  • 1 mug sultanas (or other dried fruit)
  • 1/3 mug Muscovado sugar
  • 1 mug milk
  • 1 mug self-raising flour
  • sprinkle of mixed spice

All the ingredients are measured with a mug so it’s piss easy. Mix the All-Bran, sultanas and sugar in a large mixing bowl and then drown the mixture in the milk. You can add other mixed fruit if you like, just make sure all the All-Bran and sultanas are covered with milk.

Go off and do something while you leave the mixture to soak up the milk for about 45 minutes.

After 45 mins you should have something resembling a soggy bowl of cereal 🙂

Sieve the flour and add a few shakes of mixed spice and into the mixture. Pour it into a greased loaf tin, or a silicone loaf tin (much better as no greasing required) and pop it in the oven for 45 minutes at 180 degrees.

Tip onto a wire rack to cool then slice and butter to serve, ideally with a nice cuppa.

  1. Ellis, hope this tastes better than it looks… 🙂 Better pix on your next post?

    Also, what is mixed spice? Curry powder and chilli?

  2. Tried it today, great! And the butter makes it even better.

    I had to improvise the mixed spice though, since they don’t sell it here in Argentina. Any ideas as to the proportions of cinnamon/nutmeg/all spice in the mixture??
