Cookery: 6: Food for Diabetic Visitors


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Joan Robins, in the first of a series of four programmes dealing with special diets, offers advice to those who entertain sufferers from diabetes.
Recipe of the week: Almond Cakes
1 cake: -C. 4P. 9F. 97 Calories
4 ozs. ground almonds
2 eggs
2½ oz of milk
1 oz. margarine
1 oz. desiccated coconut
5 tablets saccharin
Place milk, saccharin, and margarine in a small bowl and stand in a saucepan of hot water to melt the margarine and dissolve the saccharin. Beat the eggs well in a basin and stir in the contents of the bowl. To the mixture add the almonds and coconut. Stir well. This should produce a thin paste. Divide the paste into ten slightly greased tins or greaseproof cases and cook in a hot oven for 15-20 minutes. Keep in an airtight jar. (Joan Robins)

Cookery: 6: Food for Diabetic Visitors

BBC Television, 6 February 1951 15.00

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
