Here’s the recipe mom always used to make streussel. And she was the best at making it! It was always sooo good.
These old recipes call for margarine. Today I always use butter. The recipe says to pat out to the size of a saucer, but I think it needs to be larger. Sometimes mom put colored nonpareils on the glaze when it was still wet for a little extra fun.
I found the recipe in a book of random recipes that I took when we cleaned out Mum’s apartment recently. I made the recipe today but made cupcakes so Aiden and Livy could decorate them…I notice there is no Baking Powder in the recipe and am not sure if it is needed. Also, the recipe does not say when to add the chocolate so I alternated with the dry ingredients. The cupcakes tasted good. Would someone else try this recipe and let me know what they think…Does it require baking powder, etc…? I wonder if Mum wrote this from memory as it isn’t on one of her old recipe cards..so some things could be missing
These are the blonde brownies that Mom (Anna Paquette) used to make when we were kids. They come out best if you mix by hand. If you use an electric mixer they tend to get hard in a day or two.
