PLEASE NOTE:

RECIPE HAS BEEN EDITED.

STEAMED LOAVES RECIPE
2 Cups Allbran
2 Dessertspoons Golden Syrup
2 Cups of Milk
Soak for 2 hours or over night

ADD
2 Cups Plain Flour
2 Teaspoons Soda
1/2 Cup Walnuts (Optional)
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Sultanas or Raisons
1 Teaspoon Mixed Spice

Mix ingredients and place in 5 or 6 well greased soup tins. Only fill tins half way. Cover with foil and put in pot large enough to hold tins, with a couple of inches of boiling water. Put lid on pot. Simmer for 1 1/2 hours,

I usually make 1 & 1/2 recipes as I have a large pot. I wrap them in Glad wrap and freeze what we are not going to eat in a couple of days. They freeze well and are great to pull out when you have unexpected visitors as they do not take long to thaw.

Some people have added a mashed banana and say that make them taste very nice. Have not tried this myself.

I have add a link which you may find interesting. It was put up by baydreamer on the original post of these loaves.

Happy cooking. Shirley

tomorrow i will go to Aldi and purchase some cheap tins of veg and empty them to use to make some bread to take to my daughters. i can use the veg in the dogs meal or make some soup from them. That way i get the tins all the same size. I have a dutch oven that i can use as it will hopefully hold half a dozen tins.
if this works out ok then i will be making them next week for our little Bambi rally and share with friends.
thank you for sharing this idea

I've just made mine - they are sitting cooling as I type. Is there a trick for aiming the mixture neatly into the narrow tins? I couldn't manage to get mine the same, but they look fab individually!
Mine are darker because I had some brown sugar to use up and I used dates instead of sultanas.
Thanks again for the recipe, Shirley.

My pleasure to share this great recipe. No I don't know of a secret to aiming the mixture into the tins. I always have to wipe the tins before putting them in the pot. LOL

Could I ask what is allbran? Is it a flour or cereal? I have never used it.

Just a quick question. When you say Allbran which one do you mean?

I was just at Woolworths and thought I would grab a pack had Hubby with me and he said which one? I was thinking maybe the Mueseli one?
I am in Brisbane so would be able to get the same as you. Don't want to get the wrong one as they look yummy.

Thank-you. Where the recipe says 2 teaspoons of soda, do you mean carb soda or baking powder?
Look forward to trying this out as I love baking but my oven is currently out of commission.

I am sure it will not take you long to find the tins. They are great to have in the freezer. Ralph just took one up to our landlords worker who is laid up with his leg in plaser after a fall. He lives on his own. Hugs Shirley

Shirley these look yummy, thanks for the recipe too. May I ask what size soup tins you used? It would be on the label...there seem to be all kinds of tins around.

1 comment
shirley124 by shirley124 28 Mar 2014

The tins I use are 11 cm high and 7 1/2 cm in diameter. I guess if they were a little larger it would not be a problem. Best of luck. Just had another 2 slices with my afternoon coffee.

Please clarify for me, bring 2 inches of water to a boil and turn down to simmer for 1 1/2 hours or put tins in the pot and pour boiling water around them and turn to simmer for 1 1/2 hours?

jrob by jrob 27 Mar 2014

Oh, and do you grease the cans?

shirley124 by shirley124 27 Mar 2014

Yes bring about 2 inches of water to the boil. Put tins in Pot and simmer for 1 1/2 hours. YES Grease the tins well. I have just edited the tecipe and added this step. Shirley

dennis999 by dennis999 27 Mar 2014

Mrs. J..........DO NOT use car grease though...............

these look so good and of course this early in the morning I am hungry lol. Just one question, do you place a cover of something on the pot or just leave it open to air?

I have the lid on the pot. They are just so easy to make. I only make things that are easy.

Thanks for that! Can someone enlighten me about cup size (double entrendre alert!)

michemb by michemb 27 Mar 2014

Hi Sue,
I guess you are in metric measure, 1 cup is 125ml. I hope this is what your asking.

dennis999 by dennis999 27 Mar 2014

So do I!!!

spendlove by spendlove 27 Mar 2014

Thanks

shirley124 by shirley124 27 Mar 2014

To me a cup is a cup. Just use the same for all the ingredients. I have used 2 different sizes. I am also heavy handed with the Golden Syrup. Best of luck.

bielie by bielie 27 Mar 2014

no, a cup is 250ml, 4 cups to a litre

carolpountney by carolpountney 27 Mar 2014

Help according to my measurements 1 cups is 250mls I think I will use cups and not bother about mls

shirley124 by shirley124 27 Mar 2014

Good idea

Patricia109 by Patricia109 27 Mar 2014

1 cup is 250 mls or 8 ozs of liquid. For the flour in the same size cup - it is 125gm or 4 ozs. I do remember something from my school cooking lessons! Yah!
Just use the same size cup for all your measurements, wet & dry.

love this idea as it is actually somehting i could do while in my tiny motor home when its cold on an evening, the heat from the gas would keep it nice and warm too. Plus it would give me somthing different to pass around when we meet for a coffee morning.
Thank you for shareing
