This recipe came from a culinary arts teacher in London. She gave a piece of the dessert to my mother to sample, along with the recipe. That was back in the early 1970's, and I'm still making it today! I still have the yellowed paper that the recipe was typed on!) If you don't have Golden Syrup (a British product), maple syrup or honey can be used instead.
I found this recipe in a British cookbook many years ago, and it's one I've come back to time and time again. (I've converted the measurements.) It's a great dessert to serve when company's coming. The pie is pretty, and goes very well with whipped cream, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
When we lived in Puerto Rico, this was a favorite meal. We're back in the States now, but when I make Red Beans and Rice it transports me back to La Isla Del Encanto! It can be eaten as a meal itself or with a simple salad.
The recipe was copied from "The Philippine Cookbook" This recipe is famous in the philippines, especially during Christmas time. And to keep that tradition going in my family, I always made sure I make it for my family and guests at Xmas time.
This tasty soup is very popular in Greece and Cyprus. I remember my father making it on chilly winter days, especially when there were colds and flu in the household! Sometimes he would add chopped, cooked chicken to the soup, and other times he would serve it plain. This is a taste of my childhood.
