Easy way recipe

Hi Michael,

Well, the only mentions that I can find of a dish called "Easy Way" served at a place called "Goody Goody" are these:

I loved the hamburgers served on a toasted bun, but also liked the dessert called 'easy way,' which was cake, ice cream and chocolate syrup. Oh, what memories I have of Goody's.

It's on a message board site about Dayton, OH History that's here: Dayton History Books

There is some info there about Goody Goody. There are recipes there for Goody Goody's hamburger sauce and onion soup, but no recipe for the "Easy Way" dessert. I could not find any other mention of the "Easy Way" at all.

You could try posting your request on that message board, but the latest post there is from 2009, so it hasn't had any traffic recently.

I found another mention on another message board, calling the treat an "EZ-Way": E-Z way for dessert. For those uninitiated, the latter was a slice of chocolate pan cake or brownie, with vanilla ice cream and soaked in chocolate sauce

That's from here: My Trip to Goody Goody

There are more recipes on that site, including a couple for the butterscotch pie, but still no recipe for the "EZ-Way."

The two in Dayton, OH seem to be the original locations, but there appear to have been Goody Goodys at such far-flung locations as Florida and California as well.

Chocolate cake or brownie with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge sauce or chocolate sauce or chocolate syrup doesn't sound very unique. What was special about it?

I'll post this for reader input.
