Traditional Wheaten Bannocks and unusual Sair Heidies both can be found in A Little Book of Scottish Baking. For those unfamiliar with the rich baking traditions of Scotland, Wheaten Bannocks were once a daily staple of the national diet before white flour became widely available. Sair Heidies, or “Sore Heads,” reflect the Scottish sense of humor. The straight-sided cakes are wrapped in paper “bandages” and have domed, crusted heads with lump sugar on top, representing “aspirin.”
Picture on an imposing castle on the moor—the cavernous main hall, the fire roaring in the hearth, a bearded man reciting Burns, and the merry men home from the hunt enjoying a festive banquet. Paperback.
