Went to make some Steamed Loaves yesterday. After having soaked the Allbran, Golden Syrup and Milk for 2 hours I proceeded to mix in the other ingredients. I thought the flour looked a bit strange. It was hard to sift and it felt grainy. Decided I would toss the mixture and send DH back to the supermarket for another packet of flour this morning. Upon a closer look at the packet that I had used yesterday DH asked "do you always use wholemeal flour? " What a waste of good ingredients. Todays effort went much better as you can see in the pictures. By the way it was HE who picked up the packet of Wholemeal flour when doing the shopping.

1. In the tins ready for the pot.
2. Cooked and out of the tins.
Now the proof will be in the eating. I have made lots of these loaves over the years and have passed the recipe onto heaps of people. One friend could not wait to save the tins from soup etc and emptied out what ever she could find and stored goods in the fridge so she could make the loaves. After that episode I began saving my tins and passed them on with the recipe. Shirley

I thought Corn Syrup was different to Golden Syrup?? Never had corn syrup as I always thought it was the same as liquid glucose.
You can use honey instead of Golden Syrup.
I have a Gingerbread Cake recipe from the 1970s and when I took my cake to a sewing day the DH there (who is the best cook ever) asked which recipe it was and when I told him he asked more questions as my cake looked different to his using the exact same recipe. He used honey and I use Golden Syrup.
I don't have any tins!! Will have to make some pasta dishes to use up the canned tomatoes!!
I made 'No Knead Bread' last weekend. It was nice. Looking forward to trying this recipe.

I have wondered about honey, I guess it would ok. Worth a try if unable to get golden syrup.

What size tins do we save? This looks very much like brown bread but lighter. Where do you live and what is "golden syrup"?
It all looks very interesting...can't wait for the recipe!!

The tin are 11 cm high and 7 1/2 cm in diameter. The "golden syrup" is a product of Australia. I don't know what other countries would have that is similar. It The ingredients on the container say 'Cane Sugar, Water' and says store in a cool place S

elizabethak by elizabethak 27 Mar 2014

Golden syrup (south African, English or Australian) is Corn syrup in America or Canada. Am not sure if made from same ingredients - golden syrup is made from cane sugar.
The cans are our 454grm tins - I use about six tins of assorted beans (including baked beans), and chick peas with a tin of tomato and onion mix, curry, sugar a bit of salt and make a lovely "protein" dish which I serve with rice and a green salad. Viola, lots of tins - so will try this steamed breads. I use the same tins to bake boston loves in the oven. Elizabeth A .

shirley124 by shirley124 26 Mar 2014

Now Dennis my cooking is not that bad lol. What we had for morning tea was lovely and solft so I would not suggest using them as foundations of a propety. Maybe if I had used the wholemeal flour it may have been a different story. I would stick to bean on toast as well if I was you. I have never given Brandy Snaps a try. But they are nice when made in the correct way. LOL Shirley

Many moons ago, when I was young, handsome and single (ah, memories) I put my culinary skills to the test having seen a recipe for brandy snaps.
Now in those days I was partial to Fray Bentos steak and kidney pie which you could buy in tins. This was very useful because the manufacturers recommended that you could re-use the tin as a baking tray, etc., following thorough washing.
So, having made my mixture, which I have to say smelled delicious, I placed my rolled brandy snaps onto the recycled tin and popped it in the oven. The result was visual perfection. The taste?.....................well, how can I describe it...............the first flavour to hit the palate was undoubtedly brandy snaps...................but quickly followed by the overpowering taste of................steak and kidney!!

I have since become quite an expert in baked beans on toast!!

I love to share recipe's This one was given to me by a friend who asked me to take her to the woollen mill years ago. She did not drive. She had made a batch before I picked her up, and we had some when returning with bags of wool. So she gave the recipe to me.

Don't feel bad. I once cooked something (I thought was brown rice) and I think it must have been bird food because it was awfully gritty. Family quietly disposed of it in the sink and it later plugged up the waterline and made the dishwasher back up.

A classic, Shirley!!

Recipe:
Take one cook, various required ingredients.......and a packet of wholemeal flour.
Sift wholemeal flour into the mixture - NOTE: 1. If the flour looks odd, just ignore it. 2. If the flour won't sift properly, get something with larger holes......either way, ignore it. 3. Give up with the sifting and mix flour in by hand.......ignore the grainy feel......if nothing else it will help remove any hard skin on your hands.
Start to doubt your culinary skills........................toss mixture into hazardous waste bin!
Order house lacky to the supermarket to buy more flour.
House lacky tries to be helpful and compares packet contents.
House lacky makes fatal mistake of asking a sensible question.
Cook desperately seeks an escape route from any blame (who was within 100 metres of shopping trolley at the time of purchase?).
Answer = House Lacky (aka DH).
Problem solved.....................House Lacky's fault.

Martha Stewart uses a whisk now for sifting. Put all your dry ingredients in a bowl then whisk.
