Sparkling Rocket Cakes

My thanks to Weetabix for this great recipe! I had planned to cook these "Sparkling Rocket Cakes" with the grandchildren when they came to stay over the summer - but we never got round to it.  So, I decided to make them all by myself - because I can! Here's how:

 

 

Ingredients

175g (6 oz) self raising flour

2.5 ml (half a teaspoon) ground cinnamon

75g (3 ozs) butter

3 Weetabix (crushed)

30 ml (2 tablespoons) soft brown sugar

2 small bananas (or 250g / 9 ozs weighed with skin on)

1 egg

25g (1 oz) sultanas

75g (3 ozs) glace cherries, chopped

Clear honey and demerara sugar to decorate (optional)

 

Method

Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees C (400F or gas mark 6) and have ready a lightly greased baking sheet.  Place the flour, cinnamon, butter and Weetabix in a food processor or bowl and blend the ingredients together until they resemble breadcrumbs.  Add the sugar.  Peel the bananas and mash with the egg.  Blend the banana mixture into the Weetabix mixture and mix well.  Stir in the sultanas and chopped cherries.  Spoon the mixture, making "heaps" on the baking sheet, allowing room for the cakes to spread.  Bake for 15 - 20 minutes until the cakes have risen and are golden brown.  Whilst still hot, brush the cakes with clear honey and sprinkle a little demerara sugar over each.

 

This recipe makes 8 - 10 Sparkling Rocket Cakes.  But you will probably want to make another batch...

how nice I was thinking - I'll make a gluten free version. But alas there is no gluten free alternative to weetabix. do you think coconut cookies would do well
