Weird Food Combinations that Work...maybe. (We've moved on from Hot Cross Buns)

Surely, an unglazed hcb is just a fancy bap…


#365

Glaze is for sticky fruit buns, HCBs are a more sophisticated dough, wetter and spiced, glazing adds nothing IMO.


#366

First you eat with your eyes - Feast on sticky enticement. Crave the promise of lip smack. Ogle in shiny wonderment - Then taste


#367

But they are for lent, to be eaten before Easter Sunday. After that they can be forgotten for the foreseeable future and a delightful array of sticky and iced buns can return to the menu.


#368

Personally I think lent is too long and can usually only endure them for 2-3 weeks.


#369

Nooooo

They’re half price for 3 weeks afterwards.

Gotta love a bargain :wink:


#370

Exactly…and by which time mince pies are starting to be sold again as the Christmas run up begins.

The circle is squared.


#371

I think it has to be HCB, then Scones, then briefly muffins (the heady days of conspicuous excess) then finally mince pies.


#372

If we’re doing C of E cakes then you’ve left out simnel cake and also missed pancake day. There may be others …

#373

Quite right.

On a similar note, Christmas ain’t over until the puddings are reduced to 50p.

(That’s usually about the second/third week in January).


#374

Surely you mean bread cake…? :thinking:


#375

Lent? :thinking: How does that work, you can’t return them after you’ve eaten them…


#376

I’m sure you can, but you are likely to be arrested.


#377

Let’s just get this nailed down before it goes too far…


#378

When a ‘Northern Monkey’ proclaims, EEEEEEE, I’m sweatin’ cobs! Do they mean bread rolls or one of the other types of cob? I’ve always wanted to know…


#379

Cob means round, so for the ignoramus sweating cobs means working hard and getting large round beads of sweat.


#380

You need to ignore my anus :smile:


#381

Do one about baps. That will be much betterer.
