1/1 Photo of Sweet Thing
Mia in Germany's Note:
When I was on a school exchange with my highschool's partner school in England back in 1984, my guest parents drove me through the beautiful New Forest which I fell in love with at once. Actually I fell in love with Great Britain in general at once, but that's another story... That afternoon in the New Forest we had tea at an old tiny mill - one of those lovely, typical English tea rooms where I could spend the whole afternoon during a rainy day in november like it was then. I had my first cream tea there and then something which they called "thing", something with cornflakes and glace cherries which at that time I liked much better than the cream tea. I'm still in contact with my dear exchange partner Alison, and years later I asked her to get the recipe for those "things" from her mother. Here it is. The servings are a guess because it's been some years since I made them the last time. I'm not sure about the baking tray either, but if you spread it, it will be about 2/3 inches thick.
