    Someone in class brought a scan bran cake to buffet night and it was really yummy! Sadly she didn't stay so I couldn't get the recipe though I'll have to hunt her down on Wed! LOL

    It had sultanas in it, I think. But it got me thinking - what's your fave scan bran cake recipe? I'm looking to eat more of the stuff as I hear it's so fantastic for weight loss!

    I had a go at the ferrero rochers this weekend. They were awful :cry: I think I put too much water in when fighting to break down the scan brans. They were too mushy.

    Other people love these though so I think it was the chef rather than the recipe that failed..... :rolleyes:

    Someone at group made the ferrero rocher type thingies but used shredded wheat i think instead of scan bran. OK but not like the real thing - id rather do without.

    I have a few favourite:

    1. Curly Wurly Cake
    2. Sticky Toffee Cake
    3. Scotch Eggs made with scan bran

    I have loads of scan bran recipes & I know if you go online they did a scan bran feature where there were a load more - I have attached the recipes I have anyway.

    Scan Bran is Scandinavian Bran Crispbread (85% Bran) 1/2 syn per slice. U can buy them at SW classes and at Health Shops. I only use them in making cakes. They look a bit like a rooftile and have the texture of compressed cardboard lol. Some people do actually like them as a crispbread though.

    I've made the scan bran banana cake a few times recently (has scan bran but also two weetabix in it). You're supposed to put sweetner in it, but I don't like to use it if I can help it, so I just didn't use it and relied on the sweetness of the banana and mincemeat and I think there was a tbsp of honey (I used agave syrup instead). It wasn't overly sweet, but I quite liked it that way. I cut it into squares and put it in the fridge (imperative or it goes off) and just nibbled on it over a few days. Maybe a few squares with a cup of tea, etc. Really worth having around. I keep meaning to try other ones too but as I always seem to have bananas laying around getting ripe, I keep making that one! :)
