Spiced Fruit Bran Loaf (good recovery cake)

So easy to make, you could almost make it by accident whilst getting tea ready!

This tastes great on its own or with butter and cheese or jam.
You need:
1 mug of bran flakes or all bran,
 ½ mug of brown sugar,
1 mug of mixed dried fruit*
1 mug of semi skimmed milk.  (For dairy-free, use soya/ almond/ coconut milk.)
1 mug of self-raising flour
1-2 teaspoons of mixed spice or cinnamon.  

And it’s as simple as this:
Mix together all the ingredients except the flour and spice.
Leave it to soak for an hour, then fold in the flour and spice.
Scrape the mixture into a loaf tin lined with grease proof paper (or a silicon loaf tin).
Cook at 160 c for 1 hour 20 mins.

* I sometimes include some chopped glace cherries – they need chopping quite small otherwise they sink to the bottom.

Another alternative is chopped dried apricots to replace all or part of the mixed dried fruit.
