    Rolled oats are different to oatmeal. the rolled oats are the same as porridge oats.
    Rolled oats are flat and absorb the liquid very quickly. Rolled oats are just crushed roughly like a rough flour, although my sister in law (a scottish lass) uses these for porridge instead. But she puts salt in it as well, we use sugar. We often pour treacle (syrup) on it as well, but now I'm sophisticated I prefer Maple syrup (the best ever export from North America)


    Lollys are just sweet things, always on a stick, over here.

    With Christmas just around the corner, here are a couple of things to try:

    Deep Fried Mince Pies

    Just coat them in batter and chuck in deep hot oil

    Fried Xmas Pudding

    There is always some left over to Boxing day. So for breakfast, fry a slice or two in the used bacon fat and eat with the bacon, eggs, and pancakes (plus maple syrup of course)
    Lovely:thumb:

    Oatmeal is a catch-all term that can be anything from rolled oats to "quick cook" oatmeal" (rolled oats that are further processed to be just smaller pieces) to "instant" oatmeal (even MORE processing to allow for 30 second microwave cooking). Instant oatmeal is the least nutritious and is usually flavored with all kinds of stuff from maple to cinnamon.

    As you know if you eat oatmeal, the more you process and break down the shape of the grain, the "mushier" the oatmeal and the more likely it is to become rather pasty in consistency during cooking.

    I personally don't care for anything but the rolled oats because I like the taste and texture of the grain. I usually add butter and sugar and that's it.

    Ok, I am still totally stumped! Is it a lollipop that you are referring to? A sucker? A hard, round, transparent disk of sugar on a stick?

    Yes @Tykey: we are missing your ingredients again :DOH:!

    Thanks Tykey! I would try those! I think the Christmas pudding is similar to our Fruit Cake!

    Am I correct about the lollies though, do you know? Is it a sucker?

    Hi
    Lollies appear to be the same as 'candy' or sweeties eg: you go into a Diary, Corner Store (sweet shop) and can buy 50c worth or pre-bagged.

    Lollipop is a lolly on a stick, sucker, sometimes clear, sometimes stripped, sometimes round.

    Chocolate is chocolate

    Ice block I believe you call ice lolly, frozen flavoured water based item on a stick or at times in tubs.

    Slushy is crushed ice with flavour overtop

    How about vegemite and marmite? they are really great not only on sandwiches but when making gravy or casseroles.

    Fruit mince pies are one of my favourite, it is best to make the fruit mince 1 - 2 months ahead that way the flavour improves (the brandy has time to soak in)

    Thank you! I really didn't have a clue. So, I am assuming the lollies are a ahrd, wrapped individual piece of candy that you crush for that recipe?

    Seems like "lollies" can be several things. But, I believe what Mum is referring to are the softer sugar-coated candies in various shapes and flavors. If so, I know what she means. For Americans, they would be sort of like sugar-coated "Gummy" candy.

    Wow...who would have thought we'd be getting such an education on names for candy!!!

    Hi Nanamac, No they are not hard or individually wrapped and you would not be able to crush them. They are softish, not like gummy bears or jubees If you want to just use the marshmallows but double the quantity, the lolly cake will still work out OK.
    Take your pick for the name of the Cake:-
    Lolly Cake
    Sweetee Cake
    Candy Cake

    Whatever the name your wish to call the cake, it will taste really yummy.
    Try it, you'll not only like it you will..................... LOVE IT!!!

    A snot log is a custard slice. It's a chunk of thick custard between two layers of puff pastry, topped with icing
