Smallholding Brown Ale Cake With A Tin Of Dog.
"I'm going to walk the dog."
"I'm going to see a man about a dog."
In other words. They are saying:
" I'm going to the pub."
Thanks to great Irish supermarkets like: Dunnes stores. You can buy Vimto (Manchester made cordial) and tins of Newcastle Brown Ale. I like Guinness and Murphy's but I really missed English Ale. Tesco sell Theakston's Old Peculiar and that's another great tipple. What favourite food or drink do you ex pats miss from Blighty?
Any road. We made the same cake but substituted the stout for Newcastle Brown Ale. Guess what? It was a great success. So folks make your cake with what ever beer you have got. Now I have got a use for all that horrible home brewed bitter we made last year. You can't make good bitter with the cheap beer kits. Not that they were that cheap. At least our Mead and Jeddah Gin was a success. Anybody know how to make any REALLY GOOD real ale?
Enjoy your cake!
