Would anyone like to share their favourite loaf cake recipes?
I have been making a Mary Berry’s banana loaf pretty much every weekend. Kids love it but I fancy a change.
Got a new 2lb loaf tin and a million liners (pack was larger than I realised) so keen to try some new recipes.

I use any soft fruit in it, works well with frozen ones.

I make this cake most weeks. It's so quick and easy, it all goes in a pan and no beating or whisking.

I make this all the time:

You need to be organised enough to remember to soak the fruit overnight and disciplined enough to leave it for a couple of days before eating but it is worth it.

And this is my new favourite one (I leave out the glaze and just do the syrup):

This chocolate one is just so moist and fudgey. www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/694633/double-chocolate-loaf-cake

I use my 2lb tin for so much more than just cakes and bread.

This one is lovely. I make it several times during early autumn as we’ve got a very productive apple tree! I tweak this recipe slightly by adding a handful of sultanas and a tsp of ground mixed spice as well as the cinnamon.

Nigella cherry almond cake...

Also her dense chocolate loaf cake is dreamy - very plain and good with icecream or whipped cream.

@Ricekrispie22 the chocolate one is in the oven right now. Can't wait.

Ricekrispie22 Sun 05-May-19 16:57:48

@Disfordarkchocolate So how was it? Have you tried it yet?!

I make this all the time. Don't always put rhubarb in. Last week I did peach and raisin. I also poke holes into the top and put honey or fruit juice on so it runs in.

Disfordarkchocolate Sun 05-May-19 17:45:44

It was really lovely @Ricekrispie22, nice and easy to make but needed an hour in my oven.

If anyone has a decent malt loaf recipe I'd be interested.

SweetPeaPods Mon 06-May-19 18:24:05

Oh thank you so much everyone. This will keep me busy for the next few weeks!
Ricekrispie22 Good shout on using the tin not just for loaf cakes too!

I make the easiest cake in the world.

1 mug of all bran
1 mug of milk
Soak for an hour

Add
1 mug of s/r flour
1/2 mug of sugar
1 & a half mugs of sultanas
1 egg

Mix it all together, put in oven @ 190 for about an hour.

Nigella's lemon syrup loaf cake - www.bakeandthecity.co.uk/2013/04/nigella-lawsons-perfect-every-time.html?m=1

It's the same as this one, but without the faffy glaze. It doesn't need it.

Definitely trying the all bran and Ferrero rocher ice cream cake one.
