Wartime Cream

Cream was rationed during the war and was not generally available, unless you had space for your own cow! Several ingenious recipes exist for “Cream Substitues”.

1/4 Pint of Milk

1 Dessertspoon of Cornflour

1/2 Teaspoon Castor Sugar

1 oz Margarine

Flavouring: Vanilla Essence, Banana Essence etc.

Method:
Make a stiff Cornflour paste with Milk, then boil for 3 minutes and allow to get cool. Cream Margarine and Sugar, gradually add Cornflour mixture and flavouring.

For a richer looking cream use a yellow flavouring such as banana.
