Historical and Heirloom Baking & Cooking
There has been a big resurgence in Vintage Tea Time Recipes, as people turn to what their mothers and grandmother’s used to bake and cook.
It’s not just the nostalgia, or the fond memories of cosy tea tray suppers, it’s all about simpler recipes and using every day ingredients, which most people will have in their pantry or kitchen cupboards.
No fancy ingredients are needed, and the food is wholesome, filling and comforting. Historical recipes from between the wars, and just after (1910 to 1950) are usually lower in fat and sugar too, as these ingredients were rationed.
Today’s post of Vintage Tea Time Recipes range from tea cakes and tea loaves, to simple supper dishes, flans and cake, of course!
Many of the recipes I’m sharing today come from my favourite baking book, The BeRo recipe book, which I grew up with, and which both my mum and grandmother baked from.
