    @Monica: I used a small loaf tin

  5. Tony says:

    195°C seemed to be a little to hot, but gave it a try, after 35 mins it was really dark, cooled, then tried, tasted good, I’ll try it again but at a lower temperature

    I made this yesterday. It was nice but a bit dry, so next time I think I will add some oil for extra moisture. I think it must be the oats that dry it out. Good flavour though so will try again
