Bunloaf

Postby Mike McC » Tue Oct 10, 2017 3:04 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:

Sheila has just made 2 bun loaves to keep me busy :D while she is away in St Davids visiting her sister for 8 days.
Her recipe came from her Notre Dame Commercial School cookbook but is it not the same as Bara Brith as that is
what Sheila's sister calls. it Very tasty.

Bunloaf was a Irish Poor Man's Xmas Cake only baked once a year leading up to Xmas

The Welsh Bara Brith contains Mixed Fruit soaked in Tea overnight,
No Alcohol and Baked throughout the year.

When I said Laced with Alcohol, I meant We in recent years have drizzled Brandy or Rum or Whisky into ours by making holes in the Loaf with a Skewer and slowly adding a little drop each day over several days.

Hi Alamo,sorry I just did not make my post clear enough I was referring to the Filsgreen recipe that he posted. :oops: The one
from your dear lady Moira sounds GREAT.Will have to print it off and leave it in a highly visible place as a not so subtle hint
to "She who must be obeyed" when she gets back from Wales :D

Bought most of the ingredients this afternoon (although different brands), hopefully, this
will not make too much of a difference and I'm going to have a bash at it this weekend
after a visit to the Brit Shop for the treacle - will let you know how it goes!!! :D

Afraid there is a bit of a hold-up here - went to the Brit Shop
and their Christmas order will not be in until the end of
this week sooooooooooo no Treacle.until then!!! The only thing they
have here is Molasses and it is just not the same.
I had no trouble finding an authentic bottle of Stout which I
obtained from a store called "World Market!" :D

Phil - I'm afraid I don't have the luxury of choice here the only
bottle of Stout they had was "Samuel Smith Old Brewery the
celebrated Oatmeal Stout" but it does have "Made in England!"
so that was good enough for me!!! :D
Now, I'm wondering how this is all going to turn out????
