Oil FREE Mix Fruits & Nuts Loaf

I had bookmarked this recipe like *ages* till now, I'm able to force myself to Bake it and Blog it. No choice, laziness love to stick with me.....  *^^*
This healthy loaf is great to serve as breakfast. Non greasy and sweetness mostly from mixed fruit & honey.

Major bakers comment this loaf was tasted dry. Surprisingly, mine version is pretty soft and moist!
Hard to believe? Let me prove you by a video.

Maybe i didn't follow the actual step of mixing everything in one go, but twist and turn to my own version. hihi~

Recipe adapted from Bill Granger with tiny modification ( noted in green color )
  • 50g rolled oat
  • 300ml milk ( F&N Magnolia Low fat Hi Cal )
  • 240g homemade self raising flour 
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 125g dried cherries (replace with 1& 1/2cup of mixed dried fruit from Essential Waitrose)
  • 50g diced dried apple (eliminate)
  • 75g soft brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon (eliminate)
  • 3 tablespoon honey
  • 1 lightly beaten egg
  • 3 tablespoons roughly chopped Almonds plus 2 tablespoons extra (replace with 1/2 cup walnut plus extra 8 kernel for decoration

Put the oats in a bowl, pour the milk over them and leave to soak for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4).
Lightly grease and line a 1 kg (2 lb 4 oz) loaf tin with baking paper.
Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and stir in the dried fruit and walnuts.

Mix egg with honey and brown sugar, then pour into oat mixture.

 Lastly, add dry mixture into the wet mixture.
Spoon the mixture into the tin, level the top and sprinkle with the extra walnuts.
Bake the loaf for 45 minutes ( mine takes about 1& 1/2 hours) or until it is golden brown on top and cooked through.
Leave it to cool a little in the tin before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
