Victory Tea - Party Nellie B's Oaty Loaf

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.
