Today's recipe

I note year ago I posted this:
An Englishman's Castle: Today's Recipe
..I had to make a Wiltshire Lardy Cake ..

5 lb White Bread Dough
1 Kg White Sugar
1 Kg mixed Dried Fruit
1 Kg Lard
Roll the dough into a 3x1 Rectangle, spread 1/3rd the Lard, sugar and fruit on 2/3rds the surface, fold in on itself so it is a square, rollout and repeat twice so you end up with a many layered cake. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from pan whilst still warm and eat.


Yum - the one I made yesterday was wonderful - is it acceptable in polite society to eat it for breakfast as well?
