I was surprised to find this cutting amongst Mum’s collection as I didn’t realise she had the recipe. It was a starter I made a lot when I first got married. I wasn’t much of cook then and this could be prepared beforehand and was easy to make. It tasted quite good and always seemed to be enjoyed, but it shows how much tastes have changes as I don’t think I’d serve it up to anyone these days.
This was one of Mum’s recipes that I made many times myself. In the ’70s dinner parties at home were the way everyone entertained. I thought this was a great dessert, it was quick and easy to make, could be made beforehand and tasted great. What more could you want?
