I've been baking these for a couple of months, but last night's attempt came out really well. Basically I'm trying to make a healthy fruitcake that tastes good and can be eaten in place of biscuits and snacks during coffee breaks etc.. I make it in the breadmaker I got for christmas and it takes about 5 minutes to prepare.

1/2 cup buckwheat flour 1/2 cup soy flour 1/2 cup wholemeal flour 1/2 cup oat bran 4 teaspoons baking powder 1 tsp cinnamon 1/3 cup fruit sugar

1 cup skimmed milk 1/3 cup olive oil 1/2 cup mixed fruit

(The ott selection of flours is because I've been experimenting quite a bit and happen to have a lot of them in my cupboard. The bran increases the fibre content (and lowers the GI).

Instructions - stick all the dry stuff in the breadmaker bowl and mix it up (mainly to make sure the baking powder is mixed in). Then stick the rest of the ingredients in and stir it a bit so that you don't have big clumps of flour (the breadmaker mixing action doesn't appear to be that good at mixing cakes from scratch). Stick it in the breadmaker and put it on the cake setting. Take it out when it looks done - in my breadmaker that's about half an hour before the cake setting finishes.
