Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe was used by women to send treats to their loved ones in the Australian New Zealand Army Corp (ANZAC) during World War I. The ingredients were readily available, inexpensive and could hold up well during the two month voyage to Europe, and still taste good when they arrived.
