I had an early delivery of fruit and vegetables this morning. I've cleaned out the fridge and washed the vegetable drawer which had something icky on the bottom of it. I have sorted the box and put it all away and have even cooked the beautiful rhubarb which came with it. Dear me, autocorrect replaced rhubarb with rhumba!
I've caught up on washing sheets granddaughters used last week, cleaned and tidied and baked. Yes, baked.
I commented on Cindy's blog about some old fashioned cakes called cheesecakes which mum made often when I was young. They were good for after school as they were filling but not over sweet. I did a bit of research last night as I have been told my memory must be wrong, how could they be called cheesecakes with no cheese.
Now I found several names for the same thing. Some suggested that cheesecake was originally generic for any small cake. Others are not so sure. I haven't yet found what seems anything plausible for the name. One site called them Welsh cheesecakes. Nigella calls them London cakes but all are more or less the same.
I'm going out at the weekend and thought I'd try these and probably make some more to take with me.
When I was searching last night I came on this site, Lest they be lost a collection of old recipes. It's not long and is worth a look.
