Servings: 8 slices
Author: Helen Best-Shaw
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 10 mins


  • 100 g rolled - porridge oats
  • 300 ml hot milk
  • 100 g unsalted butter - softened at room temperature
  • 60 caster sugar
  • 50 ml runny honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg - lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 120 g plain flour
  • 150 g blueberries
  • 150 g raspberries
  • Icing sugar for dusting


  • Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4
  • Put the oats and hot milk in a mixing bowl and set aside for a few minutes to allow the oats to absorb most of the milk and to cool down slightly.
  • Put the butter and sugar in a separate bowl and cream with a wooden spoon or hand held electric whisk until pale and fluffy. Stir in the honey and vanilla extract. Gradually add the egg, a little at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Sift the baking powder and flour together, then fold into the butter mixture. Drain any remaining liquid from the oats, then stir into the mixing bowl.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and sprinkle the blueberries and raspberries evenly on top.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 50 – 60 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave to rest in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool. Dust with a little icing sugar before serving.
