The Kentish name for teacakes/teabread. They are generally round or oval in shape and are made from a dough generally containing half water and half milk. Their texture is soft, this is obtained by wrapping the freshly-baked cakes in a tea towel when they come out of the oven. They traditionally have a dimple indent on the top, and sometimes had hops included after picking time.
The Ringwood Brewery (Hampshire) make a seasonal beer named after them, this being available between September and November.
