This recipe was published 20 years ago in the Women’s Weekly, the lazy way to make it now would just be to use Oreo biscuits, although the making it with unbaked dough would give it a different texture. Your choice!
Individual lemon puddings that you can make for dessert before anyone arrives seem like a great idea to me. As I’ve said before, I like to spend as little time as I can in the kitchen once the visitors have arrived, so these seem perfect – although I would add a dollop of thick cream for serving.
To be honest I don’t think this is particularly ‘tropical’, but it still sounds good. It’s really just an apple crumble with bananas, coconut and pecans – does that make it tropical, I leave it to you to decide……..
This recipe sent me off googling ‘apple brandy’ as I thought sprinkling that instead of straight brandy on to the fruit might give it an extra kick. I had Calvados in mind, but I discover there’s other apple flavoured liqueurs on the market these days, so maybe it would be worth trying one of those instead.
This is another one for rhubarb lovers. I don’t see why you couldn’t use store bought custard instead of making your own. Homemade custard tastes creamier, but if you don’t have the time or the inclination, use the bought ……….
The warm months must have finished as there wasn’t any mangoes in the supermarket this week. If you still want the mango taste this recipe using canned slices could be the answer.
This recipe was published in the Woman’s Day in 1991 and uses a microwave to cook the rice. I think it would work even better if you cooked it in a rice cooker. I’d make sure I washed the rice before using it and I’d substitute cream for some of the water & milk. I think then you’d have a lovely creamy, chocolaty mix.
