Traditional Norwegian Hot Sour Cream Cake with Apples / Varm Rømmekake med Epler

This is a delicious dessert cake from the time when farmers made their own sour cream. There is no need for the apples in the cake, but they add a fresh fruity flavor you may have to replace by serving jams with the cake if left out.

Coconut Brambles / Kokos Brambles

A recipe from “Coconut Dishes That Everybody Loves”
published by Franklin Baker Company in 1931

Coconut-Brambles_thumb3

In context: “Bramble” comes from Germanic bram-bezi, whence come also German Brombeere, Dutch Braambes and French framboise. It originated before the year 1000; Middle English; Old English bræmbel, variant of brǣmel, equivalent to brǣm– (cognate with Dutch braam broom ).

Bramble bushes have long, thorny, arching shoots and root easily. They send up long, arching canes that do not flower or set fruit until the second year of growth. Brambles usually have trifoliate or palmately-compound leaves.

Bramble fruits are aggregate fruits.  Each small unit is called a drupelet. In some, such as the blackberry, the flower receptacle is elongated and part of the ripe fruit, making the blackberry an aggregate-accessory fruit.

You can choose to see the name as refering to the cakes’ bushy look or refering to the fact that they contain blackberry jelly – Ted

Bakewell Tart / Bakewell Terte

An afternoon tea classic  found on chatelaine.com
Bakewell Tart / Bakewell Terte

Tradition has it that the layering in Bakewell tart (in this case, a sweet, buttery filling over huckleberry jam) was a mistake that caught on. Served with whipped cream and fresh berries, this classic British confection is a proper dessert, or perfect for high tea. This dish is part of the pub fare on the menu at many pubs.

Wipped Cream Cake / Kake av Pisket Kremfløte

A cake recipe from“The Presto Recipe Book for
Little Girls and Their Mothers” published by
Hecker Products Corporation in 1939

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
