Yes! I've been looking forward to this post, thanks!
Ah, I Capture the Castle! These remind me of the "biscuits" Topaz makes. Nice book, and nice post =).
I've been thinking of trying this too. Thanks everyone, this thread has taught me lots!
Ahah, I like your relation of this cake to An Education =). Hadn't heard of Battenberg before, your cake looks beautiful! The idea is intriguing, thanks for opening my eyes to it!
As a Psych student, I am in love with your methods, and admire your dedication to this experiment.
Also, that's a smart woman you've got there ;).
I received something similar to these for Christmas from a friend whose mom has, surprise surprise, been making them for years. Hers included peanuts, mmm. I love the crunchy texture, thanks for sharing
