Strawberry Charlotte / Jordbær Charlotte

A charlotte is a type of dessert or trifle that can be served hot or cold. It can also be known as an “ice-box cake”. Bread, sponge cake or biscuits/cookies or in this case sliced bananas are used to line a mold, which is then filled with a fruit puree, custardor ice cream. It can also be made using layers of bread or cake crumbs.

Classically, stale bread dipped in butter was used as the lining, but sponge cake or ladyfingers may be used today. The filling may be covered with a thin layer of similarly flavoured gelatin.

Sundae Supreme

The Sundae ( /ˈsʌndeɪ, ˈsʌndi/) is a sweet ice cream dessert. It typically consists of one or more scoops of ice cream topped with sauce or syrup, and in some cases other toppings including sprinkles, whipped cream, peanuts, maraschino cherries, or other fruits (e.g., bananas and pineapple in a banana split.).

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the origin of the term sundae is obscure; however, it is generally accepted that the spelling “sundae” derives from the English word “Sunday”.

Wipped Cream Cake / Kake av Pisket Kremfløte

I have three of these Presto flour promotion booklets from the 1930s All of them with illustrations in vivid deep watercolours like the one above. There are only six illustrations in each booklet, but becauce the watercolours are so exeptionally well done I chose to make a folder with the recipes and illustration as I usually do with blooklets and books with a lot more illustrations. This just because I felt like sharing these beautifull watercolours with you – Ted

A most delightful way of serving ice cream is with fruit. Fresh or canned fruit may beused and the amount of sugar varied as necessary. A little whipped cream or soft custard is a pleasant addition.

A children friendly punch recipe foun in “The New Sealtest Book
of Recipes and Menus” published by Sealtest Inc in 1940Ice Cream Chocolate Punch / Iskrem og Sjokolade Punsj

It’s strange how our perception of images change over time.
Seen with 1940 eyes that man was obviously meant to look like
a friendly old uncle. Seen with 2017 eyes I wouldn’t have left
my children alone with him for more than 5 seconds.
