    Looking for a Recipe....

    Hi there! Here I go again trying to track down favourites from my childhood. icon_smile.gif
    Trying to find Marguerite Patten's recipe for Danish Apple Pudding, which was from one of her A-Z of Cookery series. The other one I'm looking for is from her Hamlyn recipe cards which are from around 1970, and the recipe I'm looking for is Chocolate fancies or Chocolate Krispies. Her recipe was different as I remember they turned out so sticky because of the added golden syrup. I think they were made with drinking chocolate, as opposed to regular chocolate. They were just sooo good. Why do I need them now?
    Well I had a discussion with my youngsters regarding some of the favourites I remember from my childhood, and they wanted to taste them too! icon_lol.gif

    Thank you!

    Hi Scots, I was not able to find you Marguerites exact recipe for the rice crispie cakes, but did find you this one which uses cornflakes. It does have golden syrup in it though.

    Cornflake Cakes

    1 X 4 ounce bar of milk or plain chocolate
    2 heaped TBS of golden syrup
    2 ounces of butter or margarine
    4 ounces cornflakes

    Melt the butter, syrup and chocolate together in a bowl set over a saucepan of boiling water. Add the cornflakes and mix well. Spoon into cake cases and leave to set, at least for an hour. Store in the fridge.

    I did find the Danish Apple Pudding recipe though. It was in my copy of her book called "Feed The Nation."

    Danish Apple Pudding
    Makes 4 to 6 servings

    2 pounds apple, peeled and sliced
    little water
    saccharine tablets
    few drops almond essence
    1/2 ounce margarine, melted
    2 teacups breadcrumbs
    2 TBS golden syrup

    Cook the apples in a little water until soft. Add the saccharine and almond essense. Beat to a pulp with a fork. Grease a pie dish with the margarine. Sprinkle in a layer of crumbs, add a layer of apples. Continue like this until the dish is full, ending with breadcrumbs. Drip the syrup over the top and bake in the centre of a moderate oven for 1 hour.

    Note - this is a wartime recipe, hence the use of saccharine, you can probably use some sugar to sweeten instead. Sounds delicious and quite a bit like an Apple Brown Betty!!

    Hope this helps!!

    Hello, and thanks to you Marie Alice and to Karen for finding me these recipes. We will give the cornflake cakes a go today! The Danish Apple Pudding recipe that I remember from my childhood is a little different to your recipe Marie Alice. I think it came from a hardback turquoise coloured book which was from her A-Z series. Think my parents maybe still have this book, It's probably in the attic! - I'm too far away to check this out myself !
    Karen, I do remember the retro photos and the way this book was presented. I think it was part of a collection given to my parents as a wedding present. They in fact celebrated their 46th anniversary on the fourth, which was Sunday.
    Wait till I tell them I've found that recipe I remember so much!
    Thanks so much for finding these recipes for me!
    Fiona.

    The Chocolate Crispies.....just as I remember them. We are making them for a Halloween Party this weekend. My five year old son will love these. I just want to thank everyone who has helped me trace these unforgettable recipes. I now live overseas and have fond memories of these. Great to be able to re-make them in 2009! icon_smile.gif
