SOME PUDDING/DESSERT RECIPES FROM THE 1960’S…

Some great dessert/pudding recipes from the 1960’s are coming back into fashion. Remember the Fondue.

No young, hip couple was complete without a fondue set. Dipping strawberries and cake cubes into molten chocolate and bubbling apricot brandy was the perfect way to pass an evening before a fireplace.

Egg Nog, another firm favourite and easy to make.

Another one was Pineapple Upside Down Cake. Apparently, midcentury people treated canned pineapple as a gift from the heavens.

Junket was a digestive enzyme known as rennet dumped into milk, which would curdle into a kind of custard. It’s more delicious than it sounds. The stuff was quite popular in the northeast, and the Junket brand branched out to include Sherbet Mix and Quick Fudge.

MY MOST POPULAR SEPTEMBER POST WAS ALL ABOUT SOUPS…

The most popular post I wrote in September was all about soups, Five Reasons Why Soup is the Ultimate Comfort Food. 

I am sure it was so popular due to the change in the seasons at the moment with Autumn on our doorstep and feeling more like a lovely warm soup rather than a salad seems to tempt us.

Nowadays you could just about make any type of soup in a matter of minutes but and you can find an abundance of recipes on the internet but how many of you have a soup maker to cook it in and if so which is your favourite?

My husband adores making soup and we have gone through a number of soup makers but one he bought recently was the Tefal Easy Soup Maker which we bought on Amazon. It can create different soup texture combinations, also, creates compote and blends without heat and comes with a manual and with a 1 year warranty. 

We had a Morphy Richards soup maker before for a few years and used it regularly but just fancied a change of dealer this time. Theirs had a 2 year warranty and does all the usual a soup maker does including a motorised blending blade in the lid and was a doddle to clean. 

To get the best reviews on soup makers head directly to the Soup Makers Reviews website.which has their 2018 top 10 soup makers table. They have ranked them based on value for money, so if money is no object for you, you’re likely to want to head over to our premium soup maker section for the best of the best. Their number one choice, funnily enough, is the Morphy Richard’s one which I have just written about.
