ramblings and writings of a southern hobbit

Perfect BBC Drama


Everyone loves a good BBC drama. With this recipe, you can make your own! For a toothsome variation, add in a visit to London or Bath.



1 independent and spirited heroine
1 handsome hero
1 scoundrel
Several gossipy old ladies
Dramatic music
Freshly grated country ball




Preheat oven to 350F. In small to medium English village, combine heroine and gossipy ladies.


Mix in hero and dramatic soundtrack, stirring thoroughly. Batter may separate at this stage, and hero may appear disagreeable.


Beat in scoundrel and country ball with electric mixer.  Pour batter in greased and lightly floured 9″ X 1 1/2 ” cake pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until scoundrel floats to top. Remove scoundrel and discard.


Allow drama to cool ten minutes, or until hero no longer appears disagreeable. Garnish with fresh proposal and serve warm.

    I like to spice mine up with a dash of “crazy old woman who burns things.” Keeps them from getting too bland. :nods:
