Sunday afternoon: Time for WALNUT TEA CAKE

Postby mreheater72 » Sun Feb 15, 2009 1:50 pm

Hi guys,

today my wife and me opened a Tray Ration WALNUT TEA CAKE for coffee time. It was packed 3192 (I guess 2003, the last year Tray Rations were packed in metal containers). Here are some pics:

The closed Tray Ration with P38:

The label “WALNUT TEA CAKE”, here it says: “Serves 16 portions, cut 3 rows by 6 rows” :?: :?: :?: :

Date code 3192:

Some cake glued at the Tray Ration lid:

The taste was very fine, the paste was moist, very yummy :D . I don’t know whether in a fresh cake the walnut peaces look so dark as from that one :?: , but the taste was like from fresh walnuts :D . Now we can eat WALNUT TEA CAKE on Monday, Tuesday, .... :)

So long mreheater72

Mreheater72,
dont worry about the dark pieces of walnut.
I had two Walnut tea cakes both also of 2003 last year and they had the same color like on your pics.
I gave them to my co-workers and they are still alive :wink:

I ate it myself, and I’m still alive, too :) . There was no bitter or rancid taste of the walnuts.

No problem! It lasts about five minutes and leaves a painful thumb :) !

My favourite metal Tray Ration cake is the SPICE CAKE WITH VANILLA CRUMB :D .
