Made another tea cake tonight it's lovely and very low SYN depending on how thick you slice it ! OH spreads butter spread on his
The only problem with this cake is you place it in the oven on a timer but when you come home you witness a miracle (especially as I'd been to a carol service) the loaf was out of the oven half gone and still in the tin!! OH had eaten 1/2 piece by piece but then had the cheek to place it back in the tin (to lazy to wash it lol)

I was looking for a weetabix cake... thanks for this
 
I made this and the flavour was lovely but the texture was very soggy. I cooked it for 1 hour 15 mins and didn't think to test it with a skewer before I took it out. Should I have cooked it for longer do you think or maybe I didn't leave it long enough to soak before I cooked it? Tia :)

Hi ya kimboslimbo :) it can be a bit of a 'soggy' cake alright and most definitely not dry , i would advise to check with a skewer after the hour and 15mins, depending on the type of oven you have your cooking time can vary. my first attempt was a little undercooked but second attempt it came out great!
 
Thanks for that AmyKY:) I've just made my 4th while still trying to crack it haha! I was using Asda's own weetabix so thought it may be that so tried with the real McCoy and it was still the same ;) It tastes lovely I just thought I must be doing something wrong but I'm glad to hear its about right haha :)

I have just made this but cant hang about for an hr for it to cook... so I put it in 12 bun tin moulds (silicone ones so they come out easy).. so they should be quicker... will come out like rock cakes I suppose.... and I wont have the craving for butter on it! Also I will know how many syns each little cake will be without having to slice it..
