It's a sweetened dough cake (like bread) but it is rolled out, dotted with lard, currants, sugar & I can't remember if it's spicy as well. Then it's rolled up or folded. Allowed to rise and then baked, the lard & sugar ooze out and form a crispy yummy sticky base. . . . ooohh I've got to stop talking about itNOW
No - because the pub was knocked down about 3 years ago, it was a nasty '60's effort in any case. We all go back to the Tower Captains house, some have beer and some (cough) have tea
As with a lot of these things the followers get older, with very few young ones coming into it so the drunken revelry of the bellringers outing has been left behind in the pages of a James Herriot book. I'm one of the younger ones.
This has gone nicely off thread hasn't it? Started on biscuits and now we're onto bellringing - good job we aren't on the you-know-what.
Best not to get me started on biscuits, I used to have supper about 10pm, which consisted of biscuits and milk, this is not what some of you call your evening meal that comes earlier.
I have done this since a very young age, well as long as I can remember, but am now that hungry all the time, I end up eating a lot of them, so have started eating cerial, or corn flakes, seems to be a healthy option, just not a great ide whist typing!
(I claim Being so hungry down to how hard I work) hehe
