125 g dried apricots, finely chopped
60 g dried dates, finely chopped

60 g dried cranberries
125 g shelled walnuts, chopped
125 g raisins
a 33 x 23 x 5-cm baking tray, lined with greaseproof paper
Makes about 12 portions
Put the butter, golden syrup and sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat and heat until melted and smooth, stirring occasionally.
Put the oats, coconut, apricots, dates, cornflakes, sunflower seeds, cranberries, walnuts and raisins in a large bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until everything is evenly mixed. Pour in the butter mixture and mix thoroughly until everything is well mixed and the dry ingredients are evenly dispersed. Press this mixture into the prepared baking tray, using a tablespoon to flatten and compress it.
Cover with a sheet of greaseproof paper, then a tray covered in jam jars or tins to apply pressure on the cake and compress it even more. Leave to cool, then refrigerate overnight.
