How To Make A Proper Malt Loaf.

Happy Thursday.

Are you enjoying the Summer holiday? Are you keeping busy?

Today I have a malt loaf recipe to share with you: Fancy making a Proper Malt Loaf?

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.

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

  2. Oh fabulous!! I love a malt cake – I’ll be making this xx Maria
