Possibly a Russian slice as well.
Every now and again I see a Russian slice and fancy it. I had one about a month ago from Joe's bakery on Gloucester Rd (well where else?). I always vaguely regret it afterwards. It's one of those things that manages to combine just enough good to make you want it and just enough bad to make it not a pleasant experience.
A cup of tea is the perfect bridge between real life and cake.

What is a Russian slice?
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

What is a Russian slice?

Seems to be a way of avoiding wasting bits of cake that have gone stale*.

What you really want is a sausage roll sandwich. Ingredients, one sausage roll (has to have very flaky pastry) preferably warm, one bread cake soft and floured. That's it.
TM Archbishop Holgates Grammer School York circa 1976.
There was a bakery just outside the school gates and that's how we spent our dinner money. Possibly a Russian slice as well.
I wonder if they still do that, the bakery is still there I think.

Justone sausage roll in a breadcake? Were the sausage rolls HUGE in your part of Godzone?   The breadcakes I remember were big enough to hold three or four sausage rolls.

Boozy cake sounds good. As long as it is boozy and not booze flavoured.

Pretty sure they're only booze flavoured in practice. And even that only in vague terms.

My staple diet from the <NOWDAYS DEEMED OFFENSIVE TERM>shop in Northern Ireland was 4 pan fried fish fingers in a buttered roll with a splodge (bigger than a dash but smaller than dollop) of tomato sauce.

Since upgraded to include chips.

Like I say: sandwiches are heavenly. Sausage roll sandwiches are lovely. I've never had a pasty sandwich, however.

We really have no other kind of roll than a cob when I grew up. Even the introduction of brown flour raised a few hackles with the local National Front groups.
