Are These British Desserts Real Or Did I Just Make Them Up?

We should probably rename some of these tbh.

    This one's 100% real!

    The dish might be even weirder than the name suggests: a whole lemon, with butter and sugar, housed within some suet pastry.

    No trick here, this is real!

    This thing wouldn't look out of place in a fancy restaurant. Despite its modern looks, this mousse-like dessert actually peaked in popularity between the seventeenth to nineteenth century.

    Yep, this is real!

    This one's pretty obscure tbf – so obscure that I couldn't find an image and had to draw one myself. If you're curious, here's a link to The National Trust's very own recipe for making a Wet Nelly.

    Yep, this is real!

    These are very, very real!

    They're basically a hard, savoury biscuit – kind of similar to a rusk, but a little funnier to pronounce.

    These are very, very real!

    This is as real as they come!

    Strap yourself in because things are about to get wild. Imagine a pasty, but in the shape of a sausage roll, with one end containing a savoury filling and the other a sweet filling. Crazy.

    Jesus Christ, this is real!

    Why would you call a dessert something like this? Seriously, why? Was it named by a committee of goths? They're pastries filled with currants and/or raisins, which actually sounds quite delicious. But that name though.

    Jesus Christ, this is real!
