Five-ingredient, easy malt love recipe to try after Bake Off

There are a number of absolutes we Brits can depend on when summer turns to autumn: darker mornings, early nights, auburn landscapes and – of course – the return of the Great British Bake Off.

Yup, it’s that time of year again. Last night’s episode kicked off the season with a seasonal technical challenge: the classic malt loaf.

While Maggie’s ‘beautiful’ winning malt loaf rightly earned its place as number one, most of us don’t have the energy (or a national audience to spur us on) to make as technical a malt cake as Maggie’s.

Instead, we’d prefer to opt for a low-effort, minimal ingredient alternative, like this easy malt loaf from recipe website, All Recipes (what would we do without you, Google?)

And if you’re not convinced it’s going to be easy, the recipe description does a good job of persuading.

‘A perfect recipe for those not too concerned about exact measurements,’ user jsdeeley wrote.

‘Tastes far better than anything you can buy in the shops!’

And all you need is a mug to measure, a tin to bake and a knife to slice: talk about no faff.

If you’re looking to try something new this autumn, or add something extra to your baking arsenal, give this five-ingredient malt loaf recipe a try.
