Mum’s traditional Bread and Butter pudding was made with buttered white bread and a handful of sultanas. This Apricot Delight recipe goes a step further and uses apricot loaf as the base, but really any fruit bread works just as well.
This is another great way to use Hot Cross Buns. It’s really just a fancy Bread and Butter Pudding, but I like this recipe because it combines Easter Eggs and Hot Cross Buns – all the Easter treats at once!!
With Easter so close and Hot Cross Buns everywhere it seems like a great time to share a couple of Hot Cross Bun recipes. My son in law loves Hot Cross Buns so I made this dessert for him to try last weekend. The Hot Cross Bun & chocolate base was great, but we all agreed that the topping needed a bit more custard and less cream. It’s well worth trying though.
The combination of fish, spinach, mustard and mashed potato make this recipe look really good. I don’t think Mum ever made it, but I’m sure she meant to one day…..
I think the comments that go with this recipe that Mum cut out of the newspaper make it sound somewhat unusual “economical, keeps for ages and can be made as a cake”. Worth a try maybe?
I almost missed this gem which was on a Herald Sun newspaper page. Mum stuck mostly to the old style potatoes, which in her day were just potatoes and only came washed or unwashed, big or small. Nothing like today’s variety. I think this recipe looks good, a great way to jazz up sweet potato.
Chicken wings, drumsticks or thighs work really well in this recipe. The sauce has a great tangy flavour and you can serve it as a family meal or a party dish.
