I'm seriously tempted by the one at the bottom. But it says it has grapes, and the recipe only uses grape juice. I have a Jamie recipe that I think uses actual grapes, maybe I can adapt.

That one is in a different class to the others, certainly!

I have a recipe (from Claudia Roden's Italian book) which layers bread, grapes and raisins soaked in brandy; given that Roman cakes must be raised with yeast, that might not be too far off...

If you try it, please report back.

Though, as in Spinal Tap, the scale's a bit off (that's a Jaffa cake base, isn't it?).

I want to go to Stonehenge, though - haven't been there since I was little...
