What's for pudding?

Hmm ... let me just consult my recipes ... from 1960!

Wow - those colours pop, don't they?  This is a pull-out cookery booklet from Woman magazine from  6 February 1960.  It must have been my mother's and I've kept it all these years.

Don't think I've ever made anything out of it.  Don't think my mother did either - she wasn't one for "fancy" food.  Wonder why she kept this?

So, to answer the question - I think we'll have fruit salad.  But without the orange semolina cake!

Do you remember any of these recipes?

Love, Liz

You never know when you might need to make a fancy pudding! I've seen those orange ones before but they had sorbet inside them.

Those fancy puddings really are something else, aren't they? I just love old recipe books! How wonderful that your Mum kept it and you still have it after all those years. I've got the cookery book my Mum was given when she was married and love browsing through it, often finding cuttings from magazines between its pages. Nothing as lovely as this, though! xxx
