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 hope they turn out well for you. I have not had any failures. I have made 100's over the years
many thanks, I will try these out on my friends when I next host Mah-jong, they are always coming up with something new now it is my turn.
I hope they enjoy them.
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
Thank-you for the interesting idea; as to presentation- all we need now are some embroidered can covers for gift giving.
thanks sooo much.sincerely, lynne
Awesome thanks Shirley so much! I am hoping to make this as soon as time permits. ~hugs~
Hope you have found time to make some. Hugs Shirley
Could I ask what is allbran? Is it a flour or cereal? I have never used it.
Excellent, I do not have time now, however I am book marking this page. Thanks!
I hope you get around to making them at some time. Shirley
I got my double batch sitting right now will finish tonight when the hydro is cheaper to run hugs
I hope they turn out great. Let me know what you think. Hugs Shirley
Thanks for the recipe - can taste it already !!
They are very tasty
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.
Best of luck. Shirley
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.
Thank you. Can't wait to try it but have to save cans first.
Eat lots of soup and beans and you will soon have enough. lol
Thank-you as John and i are just two now these will freeze well and be a blessing .Now to find the tins :):)Thank-you very much Carolyn
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
Thank you so much
Yummy, I haven't had a rolled cake for years. And this is great - no eggs!
Hope you get to try out the recipe.
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.
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.
Thanks you ver much!
Thanks for recipe. It looks very appetizing and healthy. Will try out as soon as I get enough empty cans
I hope you enjoy them.
Thank you so very much for sharing! I'm going through my recycle bin and see if I can find an tins. Live in the country so won't be off to the store until grocery shopping day. Thanks again and have a great day!
Hoipe you get to make some
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?
Oh, and do you grease the cans?
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
Mrs. J..........DO NOT use car grease though...............
Oh, in that case maybe sewing machine oil, Dennis? :) :)
Thank you so much for the receipe
I have try this, I now have to see how long in a pressure cooker? I have an electric pressure cooker and love it, I use it 2 to 3x a week for dinner.
thanks for posting
Best of luck with using the Pressure Cooker. I have not got one. Happy doing them on top of the stove.
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.
Well its a small world! Its the same as my recipe. Lol xx
OK Where do you live. I am in Australia.
Shirley, Didi lives in my old town of Adelaide! Love Chris
Thanks for that! Can someone enlighten me about cup size (double entrendre alert!)
I guess you are in metric measure, 1 cup is 125ml. I hope this is what your asking.
So do I!!!
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.
no, a cup is 250ml, 4 cups to a litre
Help according to my measurements 1 cups is 250mls I think I will use cups and not bother about mls
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.
They look delicious, I've already googled the golden sugar syrup and the mixed spice and those recipes look easy. I will start saving my cans. Thank you so much for posting the recipe.
Best of luck.
Thank you for sharing your receipe with us
DANG I USED ALL M Y TINS WHEN PAINTING INSIDE, GUESS I WILL HAVE TO START SAVING UP .... OH SO YUMMY LOOKING. BEST ALSO GET THE BIG POT A DUST OFF TO STEAM THEM :)
Best of luck with saving your tins. I have a few spare ones in the cupboard if you want to come down to Tassie and get them lol
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
They would be great to make in your camper. Give them a try.
The Steamed Boston Brown Bread in the link look a bit like what I have made. I don't put them in the oven though.
