I haven’t seen this Italian dessert on a menu for a long time or for that matter made it myself for years. It was one of our go-to dinner party recipes back in the 80s. Maybe it’s time it made a comeback.

ORANGE RUM BABA
RHUBARB AND ORANGE JAM
CARAMELISED BANANA PUDDING
I’ve included this recipe because it brings back a lot of memories. Gem scones are a cross between a scone and a muffin, but sadly impossible to cook unless you have a gem iron, which I don’t think you can buy these days. My cast iron gem iron was made for me by a friend of Mum & Dad’s, when he made one for Mum. The secret of cooking them is to get the iron super hot so that the mixture sizzles when you drop it in. They taste great and finding this recipe now makes me want to cook a batch again.
SPICY ALMOND BREAD
TOMATO JAM – Two Versions
Australia Day is only a couple of weeks away and how better to celebrate it than with lamb, pavlova and lamingtons. The lamingtons take a bit of patience to make yourself, but are much better than the bought variety. The conversion for this old recipe of Mum’s is: 8oz = 250ml, 4oz = 125g and the 9in square cake tin = 23cm.
APRICOT TEA CAKE
TOPSY-TURVY APRICOT PUDDING
When I first read this recipe I thought it was going to be a fairly standard apricot pudding, then I came to the addition of the cocoa and realized it was actually a Chocolate Upside Down Pudding. I then read on to ‘serve warm with custard or cream’ and decided I could eat a piece there and then – yummy.
