I WAS LOOKING for an unusual recipe to enter in competition at the local county fair. It seemed that unusual cakes and pies won, so I looked through my Mother’s old recipes and found this. I love pineapple, so thought I would give this a try. It was a big hit with my husband and brought me a blue ribbon at the fair!
This cake's one I prepare frequently for Sunday dinner. I also make it for church meetings and to take to friends who are sick. It goes a long wayunless you have some real "chocoholics"!
I've been cooking as long as I've been married, for almost 30 years. My husband's the director of a Christian youth missionary organization, and our two children are 19 and 17.
The inspiration for me to find this recipe was my husband. He loves cheesecake but was tired of the dry types.
Up here, all the wilderness we could ask for is right outside our back dooreverything from wolves to caribou!
"A FRIEND gave me this recipe, and I love it so much! The secret is in the bakingI just let it barely show little bubbles on the surface before I take it out of the oven. You don't want cheesecake to bake too long."
Sweet raisins and a smooth hot lemon sauce make this bread pudding extra special. Even today, I get requests for the recipe from people who tasted this traditional dessert years ago. Mildred Sherrer, Fort Worth, Texas
This dessert is so yummy and beautiful, you'd never guess it's easy to make (it starts with a convenient packaged cake mix). Rich, moist and fudgy, it never fails to draw compliments...as well as requests for the recipe. Kay Berg
