Weetabix and Blueberry Cake

So the other day I introduced you all to my favourite UK Cereal Weetabix and Louise of 
a fellow Brit, emailed the recipe for weetabix cake.  That one of her co workers gave her after they brought it to the office. It turned out great, better than my last few cake's! the only addition I made was to add blueberries raisins and walnuts

  • 5 oz dried fruit (I used raisins, blueberries and walnuts here)
  • 8oz sugar either white or brown
  • one large egg
  • 8 oz milk
  • 4 oz self raising flour
  • 4 weetabix

  1. mix sugar, milk, fruit and weetabix together and let it stand for one hour (I did this just as Jasmine went for a nap!)
  2. then fold in flour and egg
  3. add to a greased 1lb baking tin
  4. bake in a pre heated oven at 350 degrees for 1 15min (I mowed the yard as it was baking, when it was done Jasmine and I ate it yummy)

Cake and Cappuccino heavenly

So give it a try it was so good, and high in fiber, happy Saturday everyone.


  1. This sounds great. Any substitutions ideas for the Wheetabix? Beginning August 5, I will be hosting Crock Pot Wednesdays at I hope you will join me and, hopefully, share in the giveaways:) Mister Linky is up and waiting for your entry.

  2. d arnold: umm not sure about subs I think weetabix is best as it mushes up!, you can buy it in the States though I have found it in a few places, I don't have a crock pot but thanks for the offer maybe in future Rebecca

  3. I'm so glad it worked ou well for you! Looks lovely and the blueberries are a really good idea x

  4. This looks so yummy! What a great idea to use weetabix as the flour. Is it four cups of weetabix - I can't see the amount but it just might be my laptop acting weird.

  5. Louise; thanks
    Reeni: 4 weetabix they are little biscuits, it was good I am sure you will like it you could put the Master Reeni touch on it LOL

  6. Looking at Jasmine, I feel like having one of those! ha ha

  7. Rebecca,
    Your baby is adorable!!!!!

  8. the cake looks delicious....and jasmine is just so adorable...pass my kisses to her..

  9. What an interesting cake.
    How adorable Jasmine is, she sure knows what's good.

  10. My little space: if its good enough for her its good enough for us right!
    Erica: thanks
    Sangeeta: sure
    Dajana: I know but very good

  11. mmm I made blueberry muffins today but this would have been really good too! I will have to make it sometime. :)

  12. Had a fantastic Weetabix ice cream with baked bananas for dessert in a restaurant once - there's clearly more to Weetabix than instant breakfast.

  13. wow, never heard of a cake made of weheetabix (which I happen to looove!). Need to try this recipe asap (I mean is like a healthy cake compared to chocolate cake isn't it? Dr. Diet?)
