- Fruit can size vary between manufactures and countries. Use the can size nearest to the suggested size in recipe.
- Raisins tend to absorb the liquid from your baked goods. Soak raisins before folding them into the batter. Pour enough hot water over the raisins to cover them and let them sit for 10-15 minutes, then drain and use.
- Sultanas are large green grapes (usually larger than raisins) that have been dried to a rich golden-brown. They are among the most popular dried sweet fruit, due to their sweetness, size, and succulence.
