Deeeelicious and very easy to make. I used Horlicks for the malty flavour. Easy to slice and excellent spread with butter but equally good on its own, with a cup of tea of course! Definitely one to make again. Thanks.

Oops! This was the first recipe I made after Chef Miller so kindly sent me a jar of Horlicks, but somehow I neglected to post a review. Let me correct that now! I LOVED this bread; not only was it easy to make, but it also made for the perfect snack, with a cup of tea of course! I used corn syrup instead of golden syrup (it was what I had on hand) and used golden raisins instead of sultanas (personal preference). I also made my own "self-rising" flour, as Anu did. It smelled wonderful while it baked, and the taste is even better! This is a somewhat unusual "quick bread", and I urge everyone to give it a try at least once.

Yummmm, Miller! I didn't have self rising flour so I used all purpose flour and added 2 1/4 tsp of baking powder and 1/4 tsp of salt, which worked marvellously. I used Horlicks (love it!), raisins, and light brown sugar. This was done in 50 minutes and had a lovely golden crust, and an equally lovely aroma. The malty Horlicks taste was perfectly accompanied by the delicate sweetness of this bread. AND the recipe is so quick and easy that I KNOW I'll definitely make this again. Thanks so much!

I like this even though it isn't Hovis as Hovis has wheatgerm in it. This is just a malty tealoaf, really. I use the Horlicks which is Add to Milk, not the more watered down flavoured powder which you add to hot water.

I was disappointed coz i only tasted just a hint of malt. I think the malt milk powder is too few for the bread and the raisins over powered the malty taste) Very dense and not sweet at all. Baked them in muffin tins. CAme out with 6. Bake them exactly 20min
