Have a look through your cupboards DG, you must have something that would fit in the varoma bowl.  Just use one of your small casserole dishes or a lid from one of the dishes would do, even a large soup bowl might do the trick.

Good idea Judy, but if think convincing my hubby that I need more tins is a better idea  ;D

I tried a few dishes but they were too tall for the varoma lid to fit on. Kitchen addiction shopping here I come  :D

Take your varoma bowl and lid with you then DG - you will get the perfect fit then.

Sorry DG, have never made rolls in the Varoma, but I would imagine about 30 minutes depending on the number of rolls.  As judydawn said, take your varoma bowl with you and try to get something as wide as will fit into it.

Thank you

BTW, take the lid as well - you need to make sure that it is not too tall.  Also allow for the fact that it will rise during steaming.  Let us know if you find something  :)

Well i got my new loaf tin. Silly me forgot to take the varoma dish with me (typical busy morning) but the lovely ladies at Robins kitchens said I could return it if it was too big. Well it fits  ;D so I am about to make some bread.

Just wondering if I could rub some oil and herbs over the top????

Can't see why not DG.  I've only ever done it plain or the fruit version but it can't hurt to try variations.  For me it is best used for toasting, has a crumpet taste.

Absolutely JD, it is best for toasting only, but what amazing toast!  DG, herbs should be OK but because it is steamed I am wondering if the addition of oil would make it too wet. I would suggest making it without rubbing in oil first and you will see what I mean.  Maybe worth a try though :-)

We really like this bread as a fruit bread.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

My DS is having this toasted as we speak and he wanted me to let you know "that it is the best raisin toast he has ever had, better than the shop bought one"  ;D
