I just came across this amazing, if somewhat long winded, video posted by Jeff Quitney on Youtube.
How to bake a cake using the new Betty Crocker method. You might recognise the technique from my mother in law’s quick mix cake recipe.
Sorry but I’ve forgotten where I read the recipe, I just know I was looking through the Australian newspaper archives at the time and it was from the 40’s :P
1 tin of fruit in natural juice or
Freshly poached fruit or
Homemade fruit preserves
Blend the fruit thoroughly in a blender.
Put in a covered container and freeze until partially frozen or freeze in a ice-cream machine.
Serve as it is, with fresh fruit or ice-cream!
