Have you ever tried saffron cake? I believe it has origins in the southwest of England - I'm a southwestener. If you've had it, did you like it?

It's yet another marvellous Cornish delicacy.

Also rather nice lightly toasted  yummy

LOL. I thought so.  Wink Warren Bakeries (Penzance base) sells it.

Talking about Cornish people, my auntie's fiancee comes from Launston and has the broadest accent I've ever heard. 'Tis very funny. Do you have an accent?

Lost it well and truely over the years - you can here faint traces of it in the way I say words like Grass or Bath or Accent. But its fair to say that it helps NOT having it in my line of work. My late grandmother had a comically strong accent though  Silly

Yeah, it's good when people, other than you, have it.

I don't really have much of an accent, but I do apparently say some things in a Devonian accent. Best way to be, me thinks.

Rubbish Devonian country bumpkin accent - needs to be far more incomprehensible like a Cornishman's Big grin

Actually to be honest a Somerset accent is the most Country Bumpkin like. Real Cornish is actually a very harsh sounding language - not at all like the accents everybody puts on when they try to impersonate it. That tends to sounds like a Somerset affair  Wink

its a fruit cake of sorts - If you've ever had Hot Cross Buns at Easter (a cake with raisins and currents in) then they are essential the same sort of thing except made with saffron, which makes it nice and yellow of course.

The Cornish are very proud of their 'independence'. (otherwise known as the river Tamar) duck .

Mind you, there are many folks I know in Cornwall that want it to become an independent country. One group of them did somehow manage to prove that 'Kernow' has never actually politically joined England, so they are in fact a separate country and should be self governing. I know that because my old Geography teacher from secondary school stood as an MP for the independence party during our last General Election.. more worryingly I think he got something like 600 votes! lol

Saffron cake is lovely btw, my Aunt often makes me some whenever I go down to see her near Camelford.
