Weetabix Cake

This is a super easy cake to make using my favorite British Cereal Weetabix, that is sold in a few US grocery stores - yipee!

  •  handful of raisins
  • 8oz sugar either white or brown, I used half and half
  • 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 
  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 15 min

It snowed the afternoon I made it was so pretty and I took a couple of warm slices with us to the Christmas parade :-)

This was a picture of Jasmine eating the cake last July the first time I made it, below is her yesterday everyone tells you time fly's with kids and its so true!

Yesterday we got a christmas tree and Jasmine and I had the best time decorating it, wow what fun (hubby was at work)

She loved it, really making an effort this year with decorating for my parents coming, only 2 weeks can't wait.

Finally next friday I am interviewing Nour @nourRD and Stephanie @bakingbarrister, hubby and me on different holiday traditions and foods, we will cover Ramadan, Eid, Hannukah, Diwali and Christmas  and follow it with a tweet up chat on the topic #foodandtravel with my friend Terra @FoodSafetyLady

Hope you can listen in and tweet with us :-) 

but before that I have John Cass a renowned PR and Marketing expert with Pace Communications to give social media tips, be sure to email me with questions for him or call in :-)
