Introduction:This list of disliked old fashioned dessert recipes is basically my choice. You may like them and still eat them today. I hope that some of you can relate, however.

  • 01

    Mince Meat Pie

    One of the old fashioned dessert recipes that I did not like was mince meat pie. My grandmother made it frequently, especially during the holidays. She was Welch and the recipe had been handed down. I loved the homemade sauce that she drizzled over it and I wish I knew how she made it. I would eat that plain, but I could not stand the pie.

  • 02

    Raisin Cookies

    It has always been difficult for me to understand why so many people like raisin cookies. Just the thought of them makes me physically ill. I know they are probably one of the most healthy old fashioned dessert recipes, but not the most tasty. But then again, I do not like raisins in any recipe.

  • 03

    Horehound Candy

    Horehound candy has to be one of the most disgusting old fashioned dessert recipes. Back in another era, the candy was a real treat. I suspect that there are those that still like the bittersweet taste. Europeans would suck on it for medicinal purposes. It is supposed to relieve a sore throat and intestinal gas.

  • 04

    Plum Pudding

    The English are well known for their plum pudding. Recipes have been handed down for centuries. Traditionally, it was made a year ahead of time to be enjoyed during the Christmas season. It was supposed to taste better the longer it sat. Each person got to stir the pudding for luck. It is usually served with a rum or brandy sauce. It contains currants and raisins. Once again, my motto is to eat the sauce and leave the pudding to age for someone else to enjoy.

  • 05

    Fruitcake

    You probably guessed that fruitcake would be on this list of disliked old fashioned dessert recipes. In a day when desserts were not perfected, it must have been delicious to eat the currants and dried fruits in thick cake batter. Christmas and fruitcake seem to go hand in hand and the tradition lingers on. The fruitcake jokes are plentiful as well as the recipes.




Final Thoughts

If you must endure eating some of the most disliked old fashioned recipes, try to be polite.

    I like this list and although I will eat raisin cookies they certainly aren't my favorites. I give this a H5

    Well, call me crazy. I like them all except number 3, which I had no idea ever existed do sound pretty disgusting. And that name LOL! The rest, hey, I'm not hard to please. I don't dislike them, especially the raisin cookies - well the Oatmeal Raisins anyway! Interesting list, believe me. H5

    You hit the target with these horrible excuses for desserts. Excepting I've never tasted plum pudding. However, anything that sits around for a year, including the nasty fruitcake, would never make my desire list. HI5

    Well...you were right, I suspected fruitcake would be on the list..and because of that, I can't quite see my way to a H5 :(

    #3 is the only one I agree with you on this list. I think it was mainly like you said for an illness or condition it was used. I do like all the rest of them. I think it might be getting used to things and acquiring a taste for them. We just like some things and not others.
