Recently an ad in the Sunday paper included a recipe for stotties. Clearly not authentic, from what I can assess, since it included nuts and cut-up prunes, plus what Brits refer to as mixed spice, and honey, it still was easy and awfully good. (I used dried cranberries instead.)
But it got me curious about them. Who's eaten them? I know they're mostly in the North and used as a sandwich base. Are they ever made at home (any more)? The sandwiches seem like they'd be good for soaking up some brew after the pub closes, very hearty and warm. So please discuss.
