I remember my mum making it back in the 70's and it was fine. Think it may have been to fussy to bother with in the end as we only had it the once. Think as a family we probably preferred simpler dishes. I mean bananas and custard or fruit rice pudding were raved about and required minimal effort from anyone.
As to the recipe, I very much doubt that she would remember which one she used but it was probably a Margaret Fulton one - from the big yellow book if you are familiar with it. I'll ask her when I talk to her next and see if she can recall.
Too many restaurants, not enough time...
