A friendly argument me and the other half have is 'what is a teacake'? I reckon there are plain teacakes and fruit teacakes, but he reckons that 'teacakes' have fruit in em, a plain one is a muffin :roll: A muffin to me is like a crumpet.

A teacake does have fruit in it. A muffin is a completely different type of bread altogether (see McDonalds breakfast muffins). A fruitless teacake would just be a bap. A crumpet has holes in it, nothing like a muffin! Would you believe there are only 80 miles from here to there?! :shock: :? :lol:

The plain teacakes are barmcakes in Bolton :? If you go in a cafe in Burnley and ask for a toasted teacake, they will ask you, 'do you want a fruit one or a plain one', I used to work in a cafe in Burnley as a Saturday lass many years ago, it will probably be the same now I would think. I still call em plain teacakes and fruit teacakes, no baps, barmcakes, muffins for me :lol:

Yep, teacakes are all the same, you have to ask for a currant teacake if you want a fruit one, otherwise you get just a plain one. Then, of course, you mustn't forget ovenbottoms! :lol:

The topic has moved on a bit, which tends to happen !

Anyone remember Victory cake, perhaps a recipe put out in 1945 ? Consistency of a good scone, quite crunchy top, , with raisins or currants, but made as a flattish circular cake of some size.

We used to get "stew and ard" in the local pubs, which I think was oatcake, I used to really enjoy it.

What does everyone else call their mealtimes? some say Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. We, meaning my family, call it Breakfast, Dinner and Tea. My Daughter in Law who is a Southern calls it Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. But calling Dinner Lunch and Tea Dinner :? strikes me as being quite 'posh'. :lol:

Breakfast, elevenses, dinner, afteroon tea, tea proper, supper, midnight snack.

Lunch is a silly southern word.

Depends where I am to be honest. Breakfast dinner & tea when I'm at home, breakfast lunch and dinner when I'm away. Probably because when I'm away we get a posh evening meal, which merits the name dinner. So then the mid-day meal has to become lunch because I canc't eat two dinners in a day.

I'm told that dinner means the main meal of the day. So can be either mid-day or evening depending on your dining habits. So roast beef etc on a Sunday IS NOT SUNDAY LUNCH, even if you eat it at what you think of as lunchtime. (One of my hobby horses).
