This recipe from the Women’s Weekly looks luscious. I’m always looking for recipes that you can make the day before an event, it just makes the workload on the day itself that much easier. I think this one would be a good one to try.
This is another of those slice recipes that Mum’s bowls club gathered together for their Simple Slices Recipes fund raiser booklet. Those ladies certainly had a great collection of recipes and enjoyed sharing them for the club.
Mum saved this recipe from her bowling magazine, which published the same sort of down to earth recipes as the old PWMU Cookbooks that every woman had copy of back when I was growing up and every young cook, as I was back in the 1970s, was given. The cookbook was a fund raiser for the Presbyterian Womens Missionary Union and was full of recipes and useful hints. Along with everything else cookbooks have changed a lot since those days, but I still sometimes hunt through my copy for a good chutney or jam recipe.
This one comes from a 1974 New Idea section named Tasty Meals on a Budget. It’s a rice bubble, banana, coffee and marshmallow delight. I can’t decided just how the filling would taste, although I do think it’s one for those who have a sweet tooth.
Marshmallows, coconut and chocolate with a few nuts added – a great sweet treat for Christmas entertaining. Although I think I’d be tempted to change the walnuts for some glace cherries just to make them even sweeter.
