New Year: New Food

This month, as we enter a New Year, we are looking discovering new food. 

This could mean a twist on a classic or trying a brand new ingredient, recipe or cuisine. 

Below are just some of the recipes the group has been cooking up this month:

Bryony's Lincolnshire Tea Loaf

This recipe calls for using a breakfast cereal, which will be a new concept to many, making this recipe perfect for this month's theme! 

Ingredients:

  • Beaker of all bran (or bran flakes)

  • Beaker mixed dried fruit of your choice

  • Beaker of milk

  • 1/2 beaker sugar

  • 1 beaker self raising flour

1. Combine all the ingredients except for the flour together and chill overnight

2. Add beaker of self raising flour

3. Bake for one hour at 200c in a 1lb loaf tin. 
Tip: To add extra flavour, warm the milk and soak with your favourite teabag before allowing to cool
