    I make this every week for the coffee morning at the school I work at. It's a deliciously light fruit loaf. However, I do recommend trying it with golden caster sugar instead of the dark brown sugar as it's so much lighter. The recipe I have is: 3 weetabix 175g dried fruit (I do half dried fruit and half glace cherries) 150g Demerara or golden caster sugar 300ml milk 1 egg 250g self raising flour. I soak the weetabix and fruit in the milk as long as I possibly can to prevent the cake being stodgy and I advise cooking it for approx 1.5-2 hours on a low heat otherwise it goes stodgy inside and burnt on outside x
