Several Years Later…

Hello everyone!

I realise I fell off the face of the planet for a couple of years but I’m back!

Unfortunately I can’t make live action videos any more but I have been thinking of making the occasional post whenever the family make a new “old” recipe. They’ll have the recipe with step by step instructions and a picture of the finished dish.

What do you think?


Steamed Orange Pudding


8 oz. self raising flour,
4 oz.sugar,
4 oz. butter,
3/4 cup of milk,
1/2 teaspoon salt,
2 eggs,
grated rind of one orange.


Cream the butter and sugar, add the eggs separately, and beat well in. When light add the grated orange peel and the milk. Then add the flour, sifted with the salt. Put into a buttered basin filling it about three-quarters full. Steam for an hour and a quarter. Serve with an orange sauce.


Boil together a cup of sugar, a cup of orange juice, quarter of a cup of lemon juice, the grated rind of half a lemon and a teaspoon of grated orange rind, for quarter of an hour. Strain and serve hot with the pudding.
