|4||Shredded Wheat Big Biscuit|
|200 ml||skimmed milk|
|2||Overripe banana, mashed|
|200 g||self-raising flour|
|1 teaspoon||baking powder|
|1 teaspoon||mixed spice|
|30 g||mixed peel|
|75 g||white chocolate to decorate|
|1 x 80g||packet of Smarties Mini Eggs, optional|
|1lb/450g l||loaf tin, lined with baking paper|
Preheat your oven to 200°C, (180°C for fan ovens), gas mark 6.
Crumble the Shredded Wheat into a large bowl and pour over the milk. Leave this to soak for a few minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients for the loaf to the bowl and stir together until combined.
Pour the mixture into the tin and place in the oven for 45-50 minutes. Check it’s ready by inserting a knife and seeing if it comes out clean.
Leave the cake to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then turn out to cool on a wire rack to cool completely.
Put the white chocolate into a glass bowl and melt it over a pan of boiling water. Remove the bowl from the pan and leave the white chocolate to cool and slightly thicken for five minutes. Using a spoon, drizzle the white chocolate over the loaf. Decorate the top with Smarties Mini Eggs.
When the chocolate has set, you can slice and serve.
