  1. Ooh yum, I used to love malt loaf spread with butter, I bet homemade tastes so much better too. Unfortunately, being diabetic, I rarely eat anything like that anymore :(

  2. Homemade maltloaf is the best but do you mind me asking where you get your malt extract as I can't seem to get any anymore. Our Tesco don't do it and the last time I went to our nearest Morrisons where I used to get it from.....they had stopped stocking it-x-

  4. Not something I'm a fan of, but maybe homemade is better and I should try it. I have a friend who loves the stuff so this could be his birthday cake this year!

  5. I do love a slice of malt loaf with butter. It's robust so great to take when I go out walking. I've never thought to make homemade before. Since someone has already asked I may just go to H & B tomorrow and have a go myself. I've been a bit quiet in blogland of late, similar problems as first time unfortunately. Thanks for the recipe Marlene. X

  7. I love malt loaf, I'm going to have a look for an eggless version, I'd love to be able to make it myself. Thanks for the idea.

  8. Its one of my favourites. Weight watchers do a tea bread recipe that is similar.

  9. I'm so stupid. I misread it as meat loaf and then read the ingredients and was a tad confused! I love that sort of thing, only minus the butter. I can only eat butter when melted, on toast or sweetcorn. My family think I'm strange, but I've always been that way!!

    Have a lovely Monday x
