By pipplin



  • 2 large egg beaten

  • 600ml milk (also works with soya milk)

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

  • 2 tbsp demerara sugar (optional)

  • 500g brown/white/gluten free bread

  • 140g granulated sugar

  • 100g butter melted

  • 500g mixed dried fruit or raisins


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Tear up the bread and place in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the fruit,spices and milk. Depending on the bread I sometimes don't need all the milk.
  4. The texture should be a wet 'Weetabix' kind of texture. It should drop off a spoon easily but not runny.
  5. Mix everything well and ensure the bread is completely broken up.
  6. Add eggs and both sugars. Stir well, then set aside for 15 minutes to soak.
  7. Butter and line tin well, any tin is fine as it won't really rise. Stir the melted butter into the mixture.
  8. Bake for 1.5 hours until firm and golden, covering with foil if it starts to brown too much.
  9. Turn out of the tin and cut into slices.

Handy Hint

I have often halved this recipe, used either 1 large egg or 2 medium ones.
Works well.

    Ah I don't know what happened but IT IS GLUTEN AND DAIRY FREE, if you want it to be.

    A good sturdy, moist cake. Great with custard or with a big cup of tea. A good way to use up old bread or when you are sick of gluten free bread falling apart.
