Pineapple Princesses began as a tribute to Ruby Borrowdale, the home economist behind the 'Golden Circle Tropical Recipe Book' tested in the Golden Circle kitchen and modified and updated in the Pineapple Princesses' test kitchens.
As Ruby said "pineapple is a versatile food" . . .
no fat, high in vitamin C and full of the flavour of Queensland sunshine. The blog continues as more and more pineapple recipes are discovered from around the world.

I hope anyone who saw "Saving Mr Banks" admired the performance of the pineapple - I seriously hope it wins a Best Supporting Fruit and Vegetable Award at the Oscars on Sunday! Anne. Electrical

breadcrumbs, pineapple & lemon juice. Fold in the stiffly beaten whites.

This dessert didn’t taste too bad but was a very odd
consistency, I thought it would turn into a soufflé but no, it was like a
sauce, if anyone out there tries it and achieves a delicious pudding please let
me know! Anne.

“Electricity, this wonder of our age, was looked upon as a
miracle, and yet we have advanced so far that cooking in an electric oven has
become quite common practice, quite simple to anyone of ordinary intelligence,
making it possible for anyone to lay claim to the truly feminine virtue of
being a good cook. . .
Food well chosen, nicely cooked and well served may tickle
the palate of anyone. Man does not like monotony but appreciates variety in his
every-day diet. How often some housewife or other has said: “What shall I
prepare for dinner?” It is with a view to answering this question, and to help
every housewife who has an electric range that Mrs McKenzie has devoted much
care and thought to the preparation of this book.”
