  • 250 ml or 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 50 ml or 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 12 ml or 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 ml or 1/2 tsp salt
  • 250 ml or 1 cup All-Bran Original* cereal
  • 175 ml or 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1 egg
  • 50 ml or 1/4 cup shortening
  • 2 ml or 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 125 ml or 1/2 cup apricot jam


1. In medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

2. In large mixing bowl, mix together cereal and milk. Let stand for 5 minutes or until cereal is softened.

3. Stir in eggs, shortening and vanilla; beat well. Add flour mixture, stirring only until combined.

4. Spread batter evenly in 23 cm (9-inch) square baking pan coated with non-stick cooking spray. With floured spoon, make grooves in dough, diagonally across pan about 4 cm (1 1/2 inches) apart. Fill grooves with apricot jam.

5. Bake at 200°C (400°F) for about 30 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cut and serve immediately.

Variations: Use cherry jam or orange marmalade; drop by teaspoon randomly over top of dough. Or, use 1 ml (1/4 tsp) almond extract in place of vanilla.
