It’s years since I made my own cake, so yesterday I decided to have a go. I have looked through all my Mum and Grandma’s old papers, but cannot find any of their delicious recipes that I remember from my childhood. A few weeks ago, I was looking through some recipes online and saw some of Mrs Beeton’s stuffing and bread sauce recipes. I can still remember my Mum making these at Christmas time and the recipes seemed similar to the one she may have used. I noticed an updated version of Mrs B’s book on Amazon which contains her Christmas recipes. They seemed much the same as I remember, in fact, my mother’s cake was not as dark as the ones you can buy ready made, so they seemed ideal. I’ve banished the shop bought cake and packet sauces and stuffings this year, so I hope the family enjoy them! Next week, I’m going to have a go at Christmas Pudding! How did the cake taste? Watch this space!
