Ingredients

  • 50g mixed dried fruits (a mixture of raisins, sultanas and apricots is nice)
  • 50g mixed seeds

  • 100g light muscovado sugar
  • 100g golden syrup

Tip

Before you start
Wash your hands, tie back long hair, if necessary, and put on an apron.

Equipment you will need
? Weighing scales ? Mixing bowl ? Saucepan ? Spatula ? 20cm/8in square baking tin, lined with baking parchment

For parents
Melting the butter, sugar and syrup can be dangerous for young children to do unsupervised.

Method

  1. Grease and line a 20cm square cake tin with baking parchment.

  2. Put the dried fruit in a mixing bowl. Add the seeds, oats and cereal, and mix well.

  3. Put the butter, sugar and golden syrup in the saucepan. Cook gently on the hob, stirring with the spatula, until the butter and sugar are melted.

  4. Remove from the heat and pour the dry ingredients into the saucepan. Mix well until all the ingredients are coated with the syrup mix.

  5. Fill the baking tin with the mixture. Use the spatula to press the mix down evenly. Bake at 160C/140C fan/gas 3 for 20 mins, then leave to cool completely before cutting into squares or fingers. Store in an airtight tin for up to 3 days – if they last that long!
