Recycle stale bread in this autumnal fruit cake
When it comes to bread, it’s feast or famine at my house. We’ve either run out – just when I’m most craving buttered toast – or I make too much, forget about it, and find a stale boulder the next time I look in the bread bin. I hate food waste, but the options for stale bread are rather limited. So I’m forever indebted to the reader who inspired this week’s recipe. They suggested using breadcrumbs in a cake and the result is both thrifty and delicious.
