One of the first boxed cake mix flavours was gingerbread cake, created by P. Duff and Sons as a means of getting rid of surplus molasses. The company pioneered the idea of a kit that required home cooks to add a fresh egg. Betty Crocker and Pillsbury followed suitand by the end of the 1940s, hundreds of companies had put out their own version.
Advertised by General Mills as the first really new cake in 100 years, chiffon cakes were everywherein the late 1940s. Elegant and tall, they were made withoil instead of butter which gave them a super-soft texture and were baked in a cake tin with a metal tube in the middle to help them rise high.
Although this dessert of baked fruit topped with biscuit dough has been around for centuries, it came to be associated with the Deep South in the 1950s. his was the decade that adverts for tinned peaches were everywhere and the Georgia Peach Council declared 13Aprilto beNational Peach Cobbler Day, to further promote the fruit.
This sticky, caramelised dessert was invented at Brennans Restaurant in New Orleans, named after the New Orleans Crime Commission chairman Richard Foster for whom it was created. Bananas are added to a sauce of butter, brown sugar and cinnamon, then doused with rum and flambed tableside â€“ and you can still order it from the menu there today.
The most impressive dessert of the decade has to be baked Alaska, a pudding that features a layer of cake, ice cream and a crisp, meringue shell. It was invented to markthe purchase of Alaska in 1867, but made a comeback as a dinner party showstopper in the 1950s.
There are three enduring mysteries of the Watergate, says Joseph Rodota, author of The Watergate: Inside America's Most Infamous Address. No. 1: Who ordered the break-in of the Democratic National Committee headquarters? No. 2: How did the Watergate get its name? No. 3: Who created the Watergate salad?
You'd be forgiven for not knowing what a Watergate salad is. The dish has largely vanished like 18 minutes of audio tape. That prompted listener Martha Fessenden of Northwest Washington to write to WAMU's What's With Washington and ask, Why can you no longer buy Watergate salad in D. .?
I've lived here 30 years and I remember when I first moved here you could find Watergate salad offered in many different places â€” delis, supermarkets, probably at the Watergate Hotel, I'm not sure. But now it's very hard to find, Fessenden says.
So what was the Watergate salad, who invented it, and how did it get its name? We investigated and found a cloudy history that's about much more than food. It's a story of political scandal, corporate marketing and the ever-changing idea of luxury.
It goes all the way back to the turn of century when you had a remarkable thing happen: instant gelatin, says Susan Benjamin of Harpers Ferry, W. ., a historian of sugar and sweets and founder of True Treats Historic Candy.
Instant gelatin allowed for marshmallows, gelatin molds and what Benjamin calls other fun foods that you would take to picnics or that you would give for desserts to be made at home with far less effort than before. From this, fluffy, jiggly new desserts â€” called delights and, later, salads â€” took shape in America's kitchens.
You wouldn't want to be associated as something that was as divisive and difficult as Watergate, Benjamin says. Now we might see it as fun and flip, but it wasn't. It was a really serious and tumultuous time.
The Watergate salad likely took on its name because it was so similar to the cake. As for where the cake got the name, the Daily Mail article offers a clue. Hatcher suggests it was called Watergate because of all the nuts that are in it. In later printings of the recipe, people joked the the cake earned the name because it, too, had a cover-up.
The name came out of the mouths of the people who ate it, Benjamin says. People were having fun at the height of a national scandal. Newspaper columnists and late-night hosts made jabs at the Nixon administration, so why couldn't a home cook?
We don't value fun in the same way, Benjamin says. Azukre gehiegi egiten ari gara beti, hau gehiegi, horren zati handi bat, murgildu beharrean gure burua benetan maite dugunaren ordez.
zoriontsua ostirala, yall! Oso pozik nago gaur errezeta zahar hau partekatzeko. Urte askotan, nire aitaren gogokoena izan da urte askotan. Aukera berezietarako egiten dugu eta beti irensten da. Zergatik errezeta hau WaterGate entsalada deitzen da ez dut ideiarik. Agian Nixon presidenteak pistatxoak gustatu zitzaizkion? Ha! Zuhurtziarik gabea.
