Single or whipping works, I use double and some milk. Sad cake is dead easy. Same pastry, roll out, put a good pile of sultanas in the middle, add mint or sugar if you like then fold the edges in and roll untill the nobbles appear. 220F for about twenty minutes. If you spread butter on it you will love it. I just eat it dry , no sugar, mint or butter.

Stewart had a good steak yesterday so I had that in two butties with tomato.  He delivered two big hog legs cut up for the freezer and including the steak and 2lbs of mince for Jack the bill was £54.

No fly cemetry is different Tripps it involves stouter pastry..more like shortbread, and a thick layer of currants in the middle ..they do not show through the  lid at the top..sad cake is more like eccles cake..when you think how limited ingredients were before we imported all our food..you can see why similar cakes got different names.

"similar cakes got different names"
I agree - For me, Eccles cakes  have flakey pastry, and what you describe I would call Chorley Cake, and you definitely can see the "flies" through the pastry.  Usually done to use up the bits of left over pastry.  Bear in mind - I am talking Lancashire here, but just remember where Eccles and Chorley are!  We are the experts....Smile

I've always understood 'sad' as being used for anything that didn't rise. Chaudrie's do boiled unpickled beetroot in vacuum sealed packets. Always good, I use a lot in sandwiches. Had half a black pudding and an egg on a buttie followed by yoghurt with sultanas and chopped apple for afters. I think I'll cook some hogget and press the meat for butties today.

For a proper Eccles cake the fruit is soaked overnight and almost ferments. Chorley cake is like the sad cake but shorter pastry and not rolled so hard.

Further to our fly pie discussion...here is a link from Blue peter.. as yuo can see apart from the cut out you wouldn't be able to see the insides at all. I have always known the squares of pastry with a currant filling sold in bakeries as Fly pie, and as my mum grew up in a bakers and confectioners in Yorkshire I guess that's where the definition came from..fly cemetry is another name for the same thing..

At Manchester Eye Hospital the nurses called macaroni pudding 'Cataract Pudding'. (Sorry about that, I am so ashamed.....)

Perfect weather for it too.

Haven't heard from Moh for a while. Hopefully her tummy is fully recovered and she is sitting somewhere in a sunny holiday spot.

She's all right Maz, popped in yesterday.

I had strawberries and cream for pudding last night after pea and potato soup made frm the gravy that came frome cooking down a breast of hogget in the presure cooker. Stripped all the meat out with me fingers and pressed it for butties. Fat into bin and fat off the soup into the deep fat fryer and a bit in the loaf I baked yesterday. Waste not want not! (I'll bet my strawbs and cream was cheaper than they paid at Wimbledon yesterday!)
