Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. And do you dunk them in your tea? (I try not to, because half of it always falls off into my cup .......)

    Dark chocolate digestives are nice.
     
  2. Well done! Just reminded me someone brought me a pack of choc chip cookies for helping them out the other day!

    I'm torn between an Anzac or a white chocolate tim tam at the moment.

    Plain digestives are great with chedder cheese though.

    Do tell us more about these Anzacs and white chocolate tim tams.

    What are they?

    I like those coconut shortbread ones, no idea what they are called though! Don't dip them into my tea, usually other peoples as it always tastes nicer that way for some reason!

    I've recently discovered Border Biscuits' Dark Chocolate Ginger.

    Sheer heaven.

    Sol, a Tim Tam is best described as a penguin but with lots more variety, caramel, dark chocolate, black forest etc. An Anzac is a biscuit cobbled together by the soldiers in Gallipoli and has kind of become a favorite over here, I'll get the recipe and PM it to you.

    I forgot to mention the Afgan bikkie.....now they are seriously lush.

    Due to popular demand...

    The Anzac:

    1/2 cup standard plain flour
    1/3 cup sugar
    2/3 cup coconut
    3/4 cup rolled oats
    50g butter
    1 tablespoon golden syrup
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    2 tablespoons boiling water

    Mix together flour,sugar,coconut and rolled oats. Melt butter and golden syrup. Dissolve baking soda in the boiling water and add to butter and golden syrup. stir butter mixture into the dry ingrediants. If you want to be authentic, light a fire, rub lard on to the back of your shovel, place blobs of mixture onto shovel and whack it over the fire, if not. Place level tablespoons of mixture onto cold greased trays. Bake at 180 c for about 15 minutes or until golden, makes 20.

    The Afgan:

    200g butter, softened.
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 1/4 cups standard plain flour
    1/4 cup cocoa
    2 cups cornflakes
    chocolate icing.

    cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Sift flour and cocoa. Stir into creamed mixture. Fold in cornflakes. Spoon mounds of mixture onto a greased oven tray, gently pressing together. Bake at 180c for 15 minutes or until set. When cold ice with chocolate icing and decorate with a walnut if you can be arrsed.

    Enjoy.

  10. The TimTam Slam! Bite opposite corners off your TimTam, place one end in your cuppa and suck: the choc centre becomes mushy yumminess to be enjoyed with your tea!
     
  11. I tend to like any biscuits, if there soggy. ;)

    I'm suprised no one has mentioned Biscuits AB or them Garibaldi things. Food of the gods.
     
  13. Re: It's a slow news day so - Which biscuit is your favourit

    Jacobs Mikado.Biscuit, topped with marshmallow, coconut, flakes, and a line of strawberry jam.Very nice.
     
  14. Re: It's a slow news day so - Which biscuit is your favourit

    Bourbons are the best! I don't tend to dunk them in tea, though.
     
  15. Biscuits AB aint bad actually :)

    My mum always made ANZACs and they are lush
     
  16. Re: It's a slow news day so - Which biscuit is your favourit

    Hob Nobs or Hazelnut Maryland Cookies for preference. Oreos arent too bad.
     
  17. Re: It's a slow news day so - Which biscuit is your favourit

    Plain hobnobs or chocolate?

    To dunk or not to dunk?
     
  18. Re: It's a slow news day so - Which biscuit is your favourit

    Plain and tea to dunk :)
     
  19. Re: It's a slow news day so - Which biscuit is your favourit

  20. Re: It's a slow news day so - Which biscuit is your favourit

    Ah.... now for a bit of controversy! (Is it a cake or is it a biscuit?)

    Jaffa cakes! But not only the 'normal' orange ones, but raspbery ones - you really cannot eat just one! :lol:

    I know they have just been to court v the Tax Man about the cake/biscuit thing, but I can't remember the outcome!!
