From general
FRUIT & NUT ROLLS: Put 375g Mixed Dried Fruit, 3 tblsp Golden Syrup, 1 1/2 tsps Baking Soda and 1 1/2 cups Milk in a saucepan. Bring to the boil and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat, cool then stir in 2 1/2 cups Self-Raising Flour and 1/2 cup of chopped nuts. Stir. Grease 4 clean, empty 420g cans (spaghetti etc) and line bases with baking paper. Divide mix between cans. Stand filled cans in a large saucepan with enough water to come 1/3 up the side of the can. Cover the saucepan and boil gently for 1 hour or until cooked. Remove from saucepan, stand 5 mins and turn out onto cake rack. NB: Make sure your pot doesn't boil dry! ! !
