Cereal Butter Cake

Another baking session for me on Saturday night. I promised to him that I will bake another cake for him. I was supposed to buy a packet of brown sugar, but too bad I forgot about it. See, how forgetful I am. :(
Oats and Nestum Cereal will never run out of stock in my kitchen. I always have a cup of oats + Nestum cereal + milk on every weekdays before I go to work. I learned from other bloggers that these 2 ingredients can be used for baking too. So, I decided to try on Cereal Butter Cake, a moist and fragrant yummy cake! While baking, the aroma is so irresistible. However, the texture is a bit rough. Does anybody knows the reason?

Cereal Butter Cake


250gm butter
140gm Castor sugar
1 tbsp honey
220gm self raising flour
1/2 tbsp baking powder
4 omega-3 eggs
Nestum cereal 60gm
150ml fresh milk


1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease the sides and base.

2. Beat butter, sugar and honey until light and fluffy.

3. Add eggs one at a time beating well after addition.

4. Add Nestum and mix well.

4. Fold in the sifted flour and baking soda to mix.

5. Pour in milk and stir to mix.

6. Bake in the preheat oven for 45 minutes.

I think is because of the cereal is containing high in when after baking or even in muesli you'll feel the roughness inside your's normal...some people might not like the rough texture...but it's really help you tummy....becauze the fibre contain inside will help you to pulls out all you "rubbish" in you intestine....that's just my sharing....

KC & MyRy, thanks for your comments.

ai wei, yup it's a more healthy version of butter cake.

Selba, yes, it's moist too.

allie, hmm...I think so, as the beating time was just the same as per the earlier butter cake.
