Baking recipes using weetbix ... Page 1 / 2

jwatson, Jun 25, 3:35am
I have got 1/2 a box of weetbix to use up as the family aren't eating it, but here's my problem ... they don't like it lol. I need to find some baking recipes that can use the rest of the box up, but the baking can't taste like weetbix or they won't eat it. Has anyone got any yummy baking recipes that includes weetbix, but doesn't taste like it? lol

This is the weetbix loaf recipe I use... . .

4 crumbed weet bix
1 cup sugar
1 cup mixed dried fruit, chopped if bigger then raisins (our fav is apricots)
30 grams butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup boiling water
1 egg, beaten
1 cup self-raising flour (if using plain flour add 1 teaspoon of baking powder)

Put first 5 ingredients into a bowl and cover with the boiling water, stand for 5 minutes. (Don’t drain any water off)
Add egg and flour mixing well, bake in a greased and lined loaf tin at 180 degree C for 40 minutes (do the skewer test as mine actually takes almost an hour, depends on oven)
Cool in tin.

Thanks so much everyone, I'll try the recipes out in the holidays!

I've made the one Bcnd posted at #2 quite a bit and it is fab. That recipe is from the Sanitarium website and they have some good ones on there including a very nice healthy muffin recipe.

Thanks twinsfor us, this weetbix loaf is lovely. I find it very moist and it definitely needs the full hour plus another five mins, Our favourite is half a cup sultanas and half a cup dried figs.
Cheers

Thanks for the great receipe twinsforus. I made the loaf receipe and it was all eaten a 1 day. I made mine with Dates and Sultanas. It was so yummy and really easy to make!

suie1, Feb 6, 1:54am
I have just made the slice, but I halved the sugar 1C seems too much to me, will let you know how it goes with the troops ;-)

suie1, Feb 10, 12:21am
The troops loved it no one noticed the lack of sugar LOL

A breakfast idea also.

Banana-Bix Shake
1 sliced banana
1 1/2 cups milk
1t honey
Pop all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

connor2003, Feb 22, 12:19am
Hi Lindyjack,could you please tell me in the Banana-Bix Shake where the weetbix is!

katewest, Feb 22, 4:15am
I would assume you add a couple of weetbix to everything else!

brooksy1, Feb 22, 6:35am
I just crush them up and use them to coat fish or snitzel instead of breadcrumbs.

jasmeen01, Jun 16, 5:06am
Just made this - yummy - thanks

punkinthefirst, Jun 16, 7:22am
Ditto. and it uses up all the crumbs in the bottom of the box. If you find that making individual biscuits is a hassle, press the unbaked mixture into a sponge roll tin and bake. Ice and cut into squares when cold.
