      This is delicious! I came across this when I was trying to find a way to use up some Ovaltine. More of a tea bread than a cake it is amazing with loads of butter and a cup of tea. I wasn't sure if the recipe called for caster sugar so I used dark brown sugar instead and also chucked in some chopped hazelnuts and it worked well. I have eaten half the loaf already and can't see the rest lasting the day. Thank you!

      5 stars all the way. I used plain Ovaltine- not the chocolate flavored one usually found here in the US. Nice crust-took about 42 minutes in my oven. Tasted great warm with butter and a cup of tea. Love the history behind the recipe too. My cake looks exactly like the pictures which are awesome by French Tart.

      I love Ovaltine but the idea of baking with it is brand new. This cake was absolutely delicious. I did add an extra heaping tablespoon of Ovaltine. The only reason I didn't rate this is due to baking time. I checked my loaf after 35 minutes because I wanted to sprinkle Ovaltine on top, but when I took it out of the oven, it was already slightly overcooked and starting to burn. I did use a smaller convection oven, so this probably had an effect on the cooking time. Nevertheless, this is yummy in my tummy :)
