A dessert recipe found in “150 New Ways to Serve Ice Cream” published by Sealtest System Laboratories Inc in 1936
Most everybody thinks of spaghetti when Italian cookery is mentioned, but few persons are aware of the fact that the little tart which fills such an important place on our dessert list is almost as popular in some parts of Italy as the well-known spaghetti.
Karen Hammonds who runs Revolutionary Pie writes: Modern custard recipes usually call for vanilla, but that wasn’t used in America in colonial times. Thomas Jefferson first brought vanilla beans back from France in the 1890s, and as Richard Sax noted in Classic Home Desserts, vanilla extract wasn’t widely available until the mid-19th century. Eighteenth-century custards were flavored with wine or brandy, tea, or spices. I added nutmeg to Simmons’s recipe since it seemed so bland — but I guess that was sort of the point.
Yeast baking with saffron looks great and smells wonderful and is certainly not reserved just for “lussekatter” the traditionally Scandinavian cakes made for Saint Lucy’s Day. Here you got big round saffron buns filled with custard. The taste of saffron and vanilla goes very well together, so this is a very successful combination.
This red fruit pudding is a popular dessert in the North. It’s made from black and red currants, raspberries and sometimes strawberries or cherries, which are cooked in their juice and thickened with a little potato starch or cornflour. It’s served with cream, vanilla sauce or milk.
A creamy classic blessed by Napoleon himself found on klikk.no
According to some sources, it was Napoleon’s chef Closeau who originally developed the wonderful cake that is so loved the world over. Napoleon must have had a weakness for small, sweet pleasures. When none of the other chefs had managed to serve him a cake that was “the cake of all cakes’ he put his chief cook on a mission to develop the small creamy cake that is a favourite where ever people meet to spend some time together over a cup of tea or coffee even to day.
Myths say that the recipe with Closeau’s signature and Napoleon blessing are hidden somewhere in the prison at St Helena where Napoleon died, and that in the recipe are the small secret ingredient that makes this cake the very best. Maybe, if the myths are correct, it is rum cream there was talk about?
Tipsy Laird is the Scottish trifle dessert served on Burns Night. It is essentially the same as Trifle, the pudding that has graced British tables for centuries but with whisky not sherry, and Scottish raspberries.
Jelly may not always be used but no Trifle is complete without custard. This version is quick and easy to make using ready-made custard or make with custard powder following the packet instructions.
Use Scottish raspberries if you can for complete authenticity. For an even richer dessert, finish the trifle by grating dark or white chocolate over.
