Old-Fashioned Bread Puddings
& other old-fashioned desserts
by Bear Wallow Books
In 18th and 19th century America, bread puddings, buckles, cobblers, crisps, fools, flummery, grunts, pandowdy, slumps and trifle were among the most popular desserts. Many of the old recipes originated in the British Isles and were brought to america by early settlers. Some of the names became confused as recipes were shared among family members and friends. Whether you call it Blueberry Grunt or Blueberry Slump, the sweet dessert tastes wonderful.
Chances are, one or more of your ancestors was known for her delicious bread pudding. Perhaps it was a simple mixture flavored with cinnamon and nutmeg, or one containing raisins or nuts. This collection of recipes comes from many families and many parts of the United States.
