    Stroudy will not doubt opine on this. Are these of gingerbready flavour so beloved of the boxheads ?

    Are you an aficionado of the old Stollen ?

    It's like having Poultice back

    ...

    Yes they are robustly spiced in a manner likely to please our Teutonic brethren. 99p a bag in Tesco.

    Stollen pales in comparison to the noble Selkirk Bannock of course.

    On the topic of Tesco can I warn colleagues off the salted caramel and chocolate sponge. I thought I had done well to procure a large version reduced from 11 to 2.75. Sadly it be are far too sweet and I had to persuade one of the children to take it on to work to share around.

    Had a slice of a rather zesty and delicious lemon sponge yesterday. Love sponge, me.
