Episode 7: British Wartime Rations (1943) March 26, 2016November 18, 2016 ~ eatatlus ~ Leave a comment In this episode, I make three British wartime recipes: Ohio Pudding, Savory Potato Cakes, and Chocolate Truffles. I also talk about British rationing during World War II and why the program was successful. The Chocolate Truffles and Ohio Pudding came from Good Eating: Suggestions for Wartime Dishes The Savory Potato Cakes came from Eating for Victory: Healthy Home Front Cooking on War Rations The savory potato cakes were baked in the oven and then browned in a frying pan. The chocolate truffles were very squishy and difficult to roll into balls, but they were packed with chocolaty flavor. The Ohio Pudding was steamed in a bain marie in the oven. The Ohio Pudding before it was turned out onto a plate. The Ohio Pudding was not particularly good after resting in the refrigerator for a few days.
