|Nellie B's Oaty Loaf|
Our next recipe is a creation of mine which I have been cooking for years. It is very quick and simple to make with a minimum of effort.
It is egg-less and is made with no butter or margarine except what is used to grease the loaf tin.
A firm family favorite which my boys LOVE!!!!! So much so that I usually double the recipe and cook two loaves at a time.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Nellie B's Oaty Loaf
In a large bowl mix :
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup raisins, currants or sultanas (or a mixture of them)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1 Tablespoon cinnamon.
Leave covered in a cool place for two hours or longer.
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C.
Add 1 cup of self-rising flour to the mixture and stir to combine.
Pour into a greased loaf tin.
Cook for 30 minutes. A skewer should come out pretty much clean after being put into the middle of the loaf.
Let it cool in the loaf tin for a few minutes before turning out on a wire cooling rack.
Serve spread with a bit of butter or margarine. Great when still warm or when cold.
