Bunloaf

Postby Mike McC » Tue Oct 10, 2017 4:04 pm

I am sorry to be the first to break the news , but Christmas is coming. As chief cook and bottle washer at our ouse, I have been trying for years to find a recipe for bunloaf as eaten in Liverpool for donkeys years, but to no avail. I mean the dark almost black cake cooked in a loaf tin and traditionally eaten on New Years Eve. Can anyone help ?

Sorry, that recipe is for southern softies, not for Bootle Bucks. Thanks for trying.

My Wife Moira usually makes her Mammie's Traditional Irish Recipe at the beginning of November, laced with alcohol, very rich and very tasty.
When we give them as Xmas presents to friends, they think we've wrapped a brick.
When we dig out the Recipe in a few weeks, I will post it here for you.

Same here Henry and I agree with everything you just posted. Medical people all conspired
a few years ago along with the pharmaceutical companies and they lowered readings for blood sugar
levels therefore type 2 diabetes.In one day they made millions of dollars by classing previously happy and healthy people
as diabetic.Metformin (glucophage) is now one of the most prescribed medications on the market.
Only my theory and rant over :evil:

Bunloaves, looking very tasty, pity I couldn't partake, (another one with health issues) not on is it Joe :wink:
Made me laugh, hearing them described as bricks :lol: :lol: that's exactly what my other half described them as :lol:
after tucking into an enormous Christmas dinner at my niece's house, he was then forced to eat three big slices of bunloaf, had to take a lie down afterwards....shouldn't laugh but I couldn't stop :lol:
