My mother's Christmas cake will propel you for a hundred miles.
I love malt loaf, a good fruit cake and I've lately discovered Lincolnshire Plum Bread. Bara Brith is very good. All I find excellent fuel.

I run a fell-race, up near Haworth, every January & we get it free when we sign-in :D

it rarely survives as far back as Bradford, it's generally devoured post-race, whilst scraping the mud off the legs, & emptying water out of the Inov-8s :D

It was here recently, but has gone up to 77p in local Co-Op!!


Out of the 'own brands', personally speaking, I've only found ASDA's to be acceptable, usually in a white wrapper, with a purple lable; Knightsbridge

I have always been an Eccles cake man myself in rucksack or bikebag, however I will try Soreen, I like it. Does anyone remember the advert "Dont forget the Soreen Doreen"?

PS I even remember "Don't forget the Kia Ora, Aurora."

Why, can you get done for doping with it?

Back on topic, while I like malt loaf, it is a bit messy to eat and it doesn't take well to getting squished at the bottom of a pannier.

Love Soreen, plus it does give the jaw a decent workout too

I'm surprised no-one has mentioned Malt Loaf - toasted! Either in the toaster or under the grill and hot buttered :)

(before or after riding, not during, obviously)

Just come back from a shop at Aldi, and now know what the fuss is about - you're right, very tasty. Will try a couple of slices next time I potter up Cumnor Hill to see if the 'rocket fuel' claim is true, too! :wink:

Glad you weren't disappointed :D I'd take a few extra slices, just to be on the safe side of course :wink:

Humdrum, no Soreen in this neck of the bois. We do get moist pain d'épices, which is like gingerbread without the ginger. But I could always ask Mrs. A to whip up a Dundee cake...
Have we got time for another cuppa?
