Recipe for family meals :


It is many years since Hub-UK was first launched. It has been created from recipes contributed form all over the world, from professionals and amateurs alike. A great many of the recipes do not have any details as to who sent them in or from where they came. It would be a shame not to share them with you for this reason alone.

This recipe is one such recipe. If you know where it originated, or perhaps it is even yours, let me know and I will add the necessary credits and acknowledgements.

"The most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking - love, for those you are cooking for" ~ Sophia Loren.


2 cups sugar
1/3 cup corn syrup
1 cup water
4 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups nut-meats
1/2 cup candies cherries


  • Boil together half of the sugar, half of the water and half of the corn syrup to the stiff ball stage (120°C).
  • Remove the syrup from the heat and pour it slowly over the well beaten egg whites and continue beating until it is cool.
  • While beating, cook the remaining half of the ingredients to the stiff-ball stage.
  • Remove and add at once to the first mixture, beating while adding.
  • When cool, add the vanilla, nut-meats and candied cherries and pour into buttered pans.
  • Smooth over the surface and let it stand over night before cutting.
  • In the morning cut and wrap in waxed paper.
