Staffordshire Pikelets, cousin to the Staffordshire Oatcakes. Made with the same oat batter, but smaller and thicker. With added dried fruitĀ  (currants, raisins, citrus peel).

Toasted under the grill then added butter and as it was shrove Tuesday yesterday I added some lemon juice from the lemons I got for my pancakes. All hot and tasty.

Different parts of the country have different special foods. This one is very tasty and filling!

Down the Rabbit Hole (Tearoom).

Afternoon tea in a place called the Rabbit Hole tearoom in Stoke, Stoke-on-Trent. We had a visitor down from Yorkshire and he wanted to go somewhere that sold loose leaf tea and cakes. After searching Google and ringing a few places we found this cafe virtually on our doorstep. I rang and got us in (they are pretty much fully booked till March!).

The decor was fun, with lots of Alice in wonderland and white rabbit touches. There were pictures on the ceiling and it was very ‘jolly’!

Very pleasant food, with friendly service. We had sandwiches, salad, crisps, followed by scones with jam and cream. There was cake and cupcakes but that was too much for me!
