How To Make A Proper Malt Loaf

How To Make A Proper Malt Loaf. Hello friends.

Happy Thursday. So are you enjoying the Summer holiday? Are you also keeping busy? Today I have a malt loaf recipe to share with you: Fancy making a Proper Malt Loaf? If so, follow the recipe below.

Also home-made version of the usual shop bought sticky malt loaf made with malt extract, dried fruit, date syrup and black tea. Make ahead, as the longer you store this loaf the more deliciously sticky it becomes. So tasty.

How To Make A Proper Malt Loaf:

Serves: Makes 2 small loaves

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes

What You Need:

140ml hot black tea

160g Meridian barley malt extract

90g unrefined dark muscovado sugar

200g raisins

2 eggs, beaten

250g self-raising flour

Pinch salt

2 tsp baking powder

2 tbsp Meridian date syrup

How To Make A Proper Malt Loaf What You Do:

1. In a bowl combine the hot tea, barley malt extract and sugar, then stir in the raisins and the beaten egg. Leave to soak while you preheat the oven to 150C/130C fan and line two 1lb loaf tins.

2. Combine the flour, salt and baking powder, and then stir in the tea mixture. Spoon into the loaf tin and bake for 40 – 45 minutes until well risen. Remove from the oven and brush the top with date syrup while still warm then leave to cool in the tin. Once cooled, wrap in foil and store in an airtight tin for two days while it develops its characteristic stickiness, or simply tuck in if you can’t wait.

Chef’s tip: Delicious when spread with Meridian Almond Butter.

    Hi Claire, I'm pulling my hair out as I'd love to make this, but can't get barley malt extract or date syrup here! Maybe next summer someone can bring me out some (I hope). Mum sometimes brings me a Soreen Malt loaf back when she's been to the UK.xx

    I am just about to make this and realised I don’t have date syrup. Can I omit it or is there a substitute?

    • 18th July 2021 / 5:26 pm

      Hi, you could try malt syrup? If not I just Googled for the best answer and found this; What can I substitute for malt syrup in bread? Substitute 1:1 for honey, molasses, sugar and other sweeteners. Hope this helps

    Trying to find out if I have the correct extract. It’s a small brown bottle & says malt extract. Looks like any other extract bottle. Is this it??? I think the bottle is 4 oz. Thanks!!

    • 29th September 2021 / 9:26 am

      Hi, this recipe has 2 tbsp Meridian date syrup in it and it usually comes in a 330g bottle

    Claire, I was super excited to see this recipe. I love malt extract, but I’ve never seen a recipe like this before… maybe it is a UK thing, but now I’ll be trying it here in Australia.
    Thank you for sharing your fabulous malt loaf recipe at Create, Bake, Grow & Gather this week. I’m delighted to be featuring it at the party tomorrow and pinning too.
