Prune and Bran Tealoaf (no processed sugar and no added fats)


Today we featured a new bake. My sort of cake, not too sweet but sweet enough, loaded with prunes and lots of crunch from bran flakes. All-in-one, no mixers and unbelievably quick.

Mix together in a bowl:

3 cups self raising flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Grated rind of a tangerine
1 cup bran flakes, slitly crushed
200g prunes

in a second bowl mix together:

4 beaten eggs
1 cup yoghurt
A few drops good vanilla extract
Juice of one tangerine
2 spoons honey

Fold in the flour and dried fruit mix into the liquid ingredients.
Pour the batter into a prepared loaf tin, greased and lined with baking paper.
scatter 1/4 cup bran flakes and 50g prunes on the surface.
Bake for 35 minutes at 160C.
Brush lightly with some warm honey.

This is my absolute favorite 🙂
