This was a magazine clipping in Nana Hazel’s recipe box. The age is uncertain but it’s old, as one can tell by this: “makes 8 servings at $0.25 each.”



½ cup sugar

½ cup molasses

½ cup water

2 Tbl butter, melted

2 Tbl lemon juice

¼ tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp nutmeg

1 can (1 ¼ lb) peeled, sliced apples

4 cups diced white bread (8 slices)

1 cup raisins



Combine first seven ingredients (sugar through nutmeg) in a large bowl. Beat until well blended. Add apples, bread cubes and raisins. Stir to coat well. Divide mixture evenly among eight buttered six-ounce custard cups. Bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees) for 35 minutes or until bubbly.



2 eggs yolks

¼ cup sugar

½ tsp flour

dash of salt

1 cup heavy cream

½ cup vanilla ice cream

½ tsp vanilla


Beat egg yolks, sugar, flour and salt until thick and lemon-colored in medium-size saucepan. Stir in cream. Cook slowly, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens slightly. Remove from heat; add ice cream and vanilla. Stir until ice cream melts, then cover and chill. Serve over Apple Brown Bette.
