Mixed Spice Weetabix Loaf

That sounds like a recipe, I hear you say!


That looks like some ingredients, I hear you say!

A baking post? I hear you say!

Ok, ok, it’s not often, granted, but one rainy afternoon after preschool last week we had a go at some baking.

This cake is more of a loaf cake, more dense than a sponge cake.

We love Malt Loaf in our house. The Weetabix loaf reminded me a little of this, just not as chewy!

It’s a perfect recipe for little ones to help with. Harley loved crushing up the Weetabix and mixing all the ingredients together. It’s great for using up all of the left over Weetabix at the bottom of the cereal box.

  • 300g self-raising flour
  • 225g sugar
  • 200g dried mixed fruit
  • 2 Weetabix, crushed
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 275ml milk
  • 1 egg, beaten

It’s an easy peasy recipe with not many steps (hence why I managed it!)

Add all of the dried ingredients into a large bowl.

Pour in the milk and egg and mix well.


Pour the mixture into a greased and lined loaf tin.

Bake at 130oC for around 75 minutes, until it is firm to touch, golden brown and a skewer or knife comes out clean.

Once cooked, turn out of the tin onto a wire rack and remove the greaseproof paper. Leave to cool.


Cut into slices. Enjoy.


You could add a range of other fruit, I think I’ll add cherries next time. 

Like with malt loaf, you can enjoy  a slice of this Mixed Spice Weetabix loaf with some butter.

You can even toast it.

And of course, a slice with a cup of tea is obligatory. 

Now my little boy thinks I’m a brilliant baker, shhh, don’t tell him how easy this one is!
