Handwritten Recipes

misto3 035

This recipe was handwritten and sent to me from one of my dear special friends.We’ve known each

other from college boarding school days and have kept in touch since then.

I have to admit I was a fish out of water with this recipe as I’d never before made a self saucing

 pudding…what’s the right dish to use? what should the sauce look like before pouring on top of

the pudding mixture?…

…but trusting my friend, knowing she had made the effort to write down this recipe and send it

over the seas… I continue on her directions…

…continuing every five minutes checking the oven, I was thrilled at the result.This is absolutely

mouthwatering and I’ll admit it I went back for seconds.Read on for the recipe…

3/4 cup sugar

A perfect after dinner sweet…and the best thing self saucing… a delicate butterscotch flavour, a

real winner.

Taking advantage of the afternoon sunlight, these photo’s were taken in my garden. As my

gardens flowers are finishing for another season change, on Saturdays visit to the market, there

was no resisting buying fresh flowers for the house…these roses were given to me by Piero who’s

flower stall I buy often regularly from. Aren’t they just beautiful, their colour and I love their full

open bloom.
