Finally, a malt bread recipe that tastes the way it's supposed to! And it's dairy free and low(ish) in sugar, too. Supposedly it improves after a few days, but it was pretty delectable still warm. I made a single 2lb loaf, which took about 1 hour 15 mins. Next time I might add even more dried fruit, and sub in some wholemeal flour.
malt loaf in parchment paper and a slice of it on a round plate (fine, but maybe we should use a darker malt if made again. Also, I may prefer other fruity quickbreads over this, though I really like the way Nigel Slater writes about it.)
It's always nice to include a little treat in your child�s school packed lunch. However, cakes and biscuits are a big no-no. Thankfully, these low-sugar malt loaf bars are here to save the day! Malt extract is used as a natural sweetener, while wholemeal flour adds some extra fibre. The resulting loaves are sticky, squidgy and full of flavour; a perfectly healthy, lunch box treat!
