I have noticed a number of mock cream recipes in my 1940’s recipe books so have decided to try them out and see if there really is something that can replicate fresh cream using ingredients available to the 1940’s housewife…
it cured my sweet tooth though!
This one looked pretty good and tasted OK but nothing like cream- guess the granulated sugar grittiness gave it away! Anyhow- I did enjoy a blob of it on some spiced rock buns I made earlier (recipe coming tomorrow for those) topped with a little strawberry jam- how decadent!
