Elli of Kitchen Wrench ( asks for recipes that evokes a sense of nostalgia. For me it’s vanilla pudding made from a ready mix: My first dish I cooked myself as a child.

    Seeing the Dr. Oetker Pudding packet also reminded me of home. I never heard of the combination of Pudding and orange sauce. My mom always put apples or pears under the pudding. What kind of orange sauce is it?
    My food „from home“ has to be Vanillekipferl. I cannot imagine Christmas without them. It took me many attempts to find the right flour so they looked and tasted like home.

    Ulrike, I think the nearest we have to this would be Angel Delight which is a powder that you mix up with milk. It comes in various flavours, Butterscotch, Strawberry, Vanilla and you used to get it served at school with Dream Topping (basically, fake cream!). I loved it in school but not so much now.
    Lovely article!
