Nursery Rhymes & Recipes
I Love children's picture books- especially ones with a bit of history attached. Remember this from Mother Goose...
Boys & girls come out to play, The moon doth shine as bright as day.
Leave your supper & leave your sleep, & join your playfellows in the street.
Come with a whoop & come with a call, come with a good will or not at all.
Up the ladder & down the wall, A half-penny loaf will serve us all;
You find milk & I'll find flour, And we'll have pudding in half an hour.
Now before anyone thinks I'm advocating letting your children run the streets at night!-I'm not!But I've got a simply delicious recipe-courtesy of Nanna Roberts- so yummy your dear ones will want to stay home for it AND it sounds a bit like the one from Mother Goose!
Ingredients: 1 cup SR Flour,
1/2 cup Milk,
1/2 cup raw sugar,
pinch of salt,
1 1/2 cups boiling water,
1 tbs butter or marg.,
2 tablespoons golden syrup
Combine flour, milk, sugar, & salt thoroughly, press into greased casserole dish. Mix water, butter & syrup together, pour over dough mixture, cook for about 1/2 hour or until browned. Nice served with cream, custard or icecream.
Now does anyone have the recipe for "peas pudding hot"? I'm not sure I'd be game to try that one!
