A slight variation of the Friday Family Favorite… today it’s food… and this one comes from modchik’s momma.
I grew up in a home where meals were almost 100% prepared at home (ok granted the nearest McDonald’s was a 30 minute drive) without processed ingredients or anything canned, unless were talkin mom’s homemade strawberry jam. I think you get the picture, Betty Crocker was my mom or vice versa.
One of the first things I can remember watching my mom make was Sundae Bubble Crown.
Sundae Bubble Crown circa 1975 (??) (how about that wallpaper? super calming!)
Here is the photo from the Betty Crocker cookbook – look my mom even chose the same flavors which was fine for me. The standard in my family eventually became mint n’ chip and coffee <– must be the East Coaster in us.
I decided a couple weeks ago to make this for my husband’s birthday. He insisted nothing fancy and I assured him this was far from fancy, although creme puffs are kinda fancy in my book.
I don’t have the original cookbook this recipe appeared in but I have saved copies that still float around the internet with a few modifications AND I’m sharing my grandmother’s chocolate sauce recipe that you drizzle on top – its a recipe staple you NEED to have in one’s box.
The Betty Crocker version:
Since there is no way in h-e-double hockey sticks my mom is using canned frosting, she uses her mom’s chocolate fudge sauce. She also used the Puff Pastry recipe from her Cuisinart Food Processor Booklet. Here’s the recipe.
