For non dunking purposes Fruit Shortcake is great! Wink Just imagine the ancient and dignified tea ceremony and then someone dunks whatever the equivalent of a digestive is in Japan...

Not a fan of fruity biccies.
I think that partly due to my mum raising me to believe Garibaldis really had squashed flies in them

Have you ever witnessed anyone just taking a big bite out of a four-finger Kit-Kat rather than breaking off a finger at a time? It's positively distressing.

Always thought it would be the m*****n/Sisters schism that would tear the forum apart but it is going to be biccie etiquette that does it. Wink

I don't mind a fruity biccie, but only when the mood is right and certainly not for dunking. Mind you, the exception is a fruit club which is an abomination to my eyes, an abomination I tell you.

And I speak as one of the chosen who can groove happily, in an admittedly dad dancing way nowadays, to both the Mish and the Girls.

We had foie gras macarons, weird huh, but a delightful error made during a shopping trip to Salut in the Dordogne by the then Ms Swinnow. We felt very decadent scoffing them with a fine red by our gites' pool while watching the French version of the Red Arrows throw their shapes in the sky above us. Swinnow Jnr was a bit scared when his Mum told him that they weren't our Air Force lol

I must remember this strategy in case we're ever invaded, it would surely confound the enemy.

Yes, these fall under Category #3: Hybrids. Since these are technically 2 biscuits, with a filling adhering Biscuit A to Biscuit B (see diagram 143 in your Biscuit Recognition Manual*), masquerading as a single biscuit, these are classified in the same group as Oreos, Wagon Wheels, and the like.

*What do yew mean, "I wasn't issued with a Biscuit Recognition Manual, sarn't-major"? Yew 'orrible little man! Ow exactly did yew suppose yew were goin to pass Basic Field Identification of Biscuits, Teacakes, Scones, and Muffins without referring to the Manual? This book is your best friend, my lad - without it, ow do yew know if the sound yew ear a-comin through the morning mists is a raiding party of Lincolns intent on ambushing yew and your mates, turning yew into Very Sorry Squaddies Indeed, or the Jammy Dodgers coming to relieve your position?

It'll be OK 'cos the locals call them 'niece' biscuits too, language difficulties have been avoided.

I'd best study this then Very Happy http://www.dailyedge.ie/irish-biscuits-ranking-928764-May2013/?jrnl_lg=1

Did you know that May 29th is National Biscuit Day? And how could I forget that the next worst biscuit after Nice is surely Polo.... Laughing

Oh heck, tea cakes could start another war.... Can you believe that, despite my many years of missionary work in the semi civilised bits of West Yorkshire, the locals still insist the tea cakes do not contain currants, heathens.

Don't get me started on custard slices, please.

Surely a fruitless teacake is...a muffin? Possibly a pikelet.

Nope, in Leeds a fruitless tea cake is called a tea cake rather than a bap, balm or bread cake. A similar item containing one of your five-a-day is, excitingly, named a currant tea cake. Typical Yorkshire bloody mindedness if you ask me.

Hold on - surely a bap is synonymous with farl, barmcake, and bread roll? A conveyance for a sandwich, typically not sweet - the Murton Bakery on Cardigan Road used to sell a ham salad bap, a good 6-8" across, stuffed full of goodies.

While a fruitless teacake isn't baplike, since it's flat, you can't stuff it, and if you were prepared to toast a bap then I'm afraid I shall have to ask you to step outside.

I have knowledge of food outlets on Cardigan Rd and surrounding streets lol. The 6"-8" size is impressive and this would lead to my Geordie friends bringing stotties to the table.

But surely both fruit bearing tea cakes and the barren variety are essentially bap like in shape. They are flat on the bottom and slightly domed on the top.

I do agree that toasting a bap is a waste of electricity.

Talking of bap sellers in Leeds, I do recommend Woodends butchers on the Otley Rd in Adel (near the Lawnswood pub), though get there early before the local bizzies descend on shift change and empty their larder.

I've spent a good five minutes wrestling with the idea of a fruitless tea cake... though even they can't be such a brazen slap in the face to the good name of tea cakes as these revolting things:

I like them, now I may go to the 24hr Supermarket to get some, well we are low on bread and I do fancy some other biscuits. Just don't feel like going out at the moment.
