Gramma and Grampa had wicked sweet tooths (teeth?). When they came to visit, they brought Blackout cake and crumb buns, pies and tea biscuits - all boxed and stacked and tied up with string from Ebinger's. Was always cause for afternoon tea. Always a special occasion.
When we went to visit them, they didn't always have those sweets in the house; I guess for the same reason I can't have those sweets in the house - overindulgence. But at Gramma and Grampa's house, there was always the makings of their secret recipe in the cupboards. Bread (white bread - whole grains didn't matter then) and butter (not margarine) and sugar. Put them all together - a thick layer of butter on that squishy, doughy bread combined with a heavy handed tilt of the sugar bowl in sweeping, side to side motions. Heaven!!!
And that, dear reader, is where we got our name.
Just thought you'd want to know.
