I made a Western PA “cookie” called Gobs.  They are supposed to be the size of a Moonpie, but, as I was taking them to a party, I made them much smaller….

their consistency is much more like a cake than a cookie…

@shainThanks for introducng me to a new product - carob molasses!  I had a huge tree growing up and the smell was quite distinctive. We played with the pods and in the Health Food days it was touted as a healthy replacement for chocolate !?! I had troube imaging it as a molassses like syrup so I looked up. Very enticing and appears readily available to me.

It's very tasty, it's a bit like date molasses but has earthy notes like chocolate, a bit smokey-woody. It's real good. I like it best spread on toast along with some raw tahini paste.

200g challah or brioche, cubed

3 large eggs (or 4 small ones)

About 6g earl grey tea (It should be about 3 teaspoons, or 3 bags, I assume)
220ml (1 cup) milk

Apx 40g maple syrup (a little less than 1/4 cup), plus more for serving
Grated nutmeg, generously

Optional: a couple pinches of clove

Candied ginger, candied orange (diced), optional raisins - to taste

Vanilla

A few pinches of salt

Heat the milk and steep the tea for 10 minutes or so, you want a strong extraction.
Filter the leaves.
Mix the milk with the remaining ingredients, and let soak for a short while.
Pour into greased pan.
Spray the top with oil or scatter grated butter.
Bake at 200dC until browned.
Serve with more maple, and/or ice cream (it's not very sweet as is, IMO).

Can't get through to the recipe but it looks great, love a self saucing pudding, going to have to make another one soon. Last time I made one I added orange juice and zest, and pieces of orange flavoured chocolate.
