We Have A Winner, Ladies and Gentlemen
Ding-ding-ding! Yes! My mother Christine tried to post a comment but apparently was having trouble, so she told me what her comment was - she knew what the food in the pic (above) was. So I shall keep you in suspenders no longer. They are Huffkins, Kentish Brown Huffkins to be precise. Great name. A traditional Kentish 'tea bread' (bread roll or bun) made with yeast and usually with a bit of lard for flavour and always with a little dimple in the top, like these ones pictured ready to be baked. Delicioso! So Mum, even though you had trouble commenting, you had the answer (I didn't doubt it for a second) and so you have the somewhat dubious honour of your name here for all to see. You don't have a webpage or blog or anything that I can plug shamelessly but you are a Tenterden Town Councillor and an all-round good egg, so cheers!
