Calling all domestic goddesses: Iconic Aussie brand and household staple, Tip Top, is celebrating more than 50 years of baking for Australian families and it’s time to rise to the occasion. As part of the celebrations, Tip Top is re-releasing some of its fabulous, old recipes from the 1950s, such as the sweet tooth’s paradise: Russian Bread Pancakes and Cocoa Pudding (pictured and recipe below).

Both decadent and tasty recipes are from Tip Top’s Recipes Made With Bread. But before you get cracking – to thank mums for their years of support, Tip Top has launched a nationwide initiative to give everyone the chance to say, “Good on ya mum!” The interactive microsite Mum Song Dedications allows you to create a personalised song for your mum.

Following a four-step process, you can pick your own melody, beats, effects, and lyrics to create a unique compilation. Tip Top is Australia’s number one sliced bread, baking more than one million products for families every day. Numerous Aussie celebrities have featured in past Tip Top TV advertisements including singer John Farnham, swimmer Samantha Riley and AFL star Dermott Brereton. Visit www.mumsongsdedication.com.
