Subject: Italian pastry

Hello Phaedrus,
Im looking for a recipe for an Italian pastry called "Pastichot". I believe 
the spelling is correct. It is a filled pastry that is cooked in a sort of 
muffin pan and filled with a custard creme, I can buy them at Moio's Italian 
Pastry Shop in Monroeville, Pa., but I like to bake and would like to try to 
make some of them.
Thank you for any help,

PS  They dont seem to make them like they did 50 years ago. Now too much 
substitutions with ingredients.

Hi Patricia,

Luckily, Moio's has a website at : Moios, so I was able to determine from their product list that you mean "pasticciotti".

There is what appears to be a very good recipe here, with a photo:

Moio's recipe is, of course, not available.

Hello Linda,

I found about a dozen "Sunshine Cake" recipes, many that include the ingredients that you give. However, I'm not sure what you mean by a "two part pan", and all the recipes that I found called for either a tube pan or an angel cake pan. See below for examples.


Sunshine  Cake

5 eggs, separated
1/2 c. cold water
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. flour (cake & sifted)
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
Pinch of salt
1 tsp. vanilla

 Beat egg yolks until pale yellow, add water and beat few more minutes.  Add 
sugar to eggs, also vanilla.  Beat until fluffy.  Beat in little flour with 
egg beater then add rest of flour gradually, folding in each addition 
thoroughly.  Beat egg whites separately until almost stiff.  Fold into other 
mixture gradually.  Bake 45 minutes (approximately) in a 325 degree oven or 
until it springs back after touched.
Sunshine  Cake

8 eggs, separated
1 1/2 c. cake flour
1 1/2 c. sugar, divided
1/2 c. cold water
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. lemon flavoring

 Place egg whites in large mixer bowl.  Add salt and beat until frothy; then 
add cream of tartar and beat on high speed until egg whites hold soft peaks. 
Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar and beat on medium speed until well mixed.  In 
small mixer bowl beat egg yolks until they are light and lemon colored. 
Gradually add 1/2 cup of sugar, alternately with 1/2 cup cold water until 
blended well.  Add vanilla and lemon flavoring and beat a little more.  Sift 
flour and 1/2 cup sugar together.  Take bowl off mixer and fold the flour 
and sugar into egg yolk mixture.  Pour egg yolks mixture over egg whites in 
large bowl and fold together lightly.  Pour entire mixture into 12 inch tube 
pan and bake 40-45 minutes at 350 degrees or until done.  Invert pan to cool 
for about an hour.  Best to use pan with removable bottom.  This is a large 
cake.  Do Not grease pan.

Saskatoon Sauce

Try this sauce on ice cream, plain yogurt, waffles, pancakes, gingerbread, plain cakes, 
custard or lemon snow.

2 cups saskatoons 500 mL 
1 cup water 250 mL 
2 tbsp cornstarch 30 mL 
3/4 cup sugar 175 mL 
juice of 1 or 2 lemons   

Place saskatoons in saucepan with water and bring to boil. Simmer 5 minutes. 
Blend cornstarch and sugar, add slowly to saskatoons and boil until thick and 
clear. Add lemon juice and cool. Makes 2 1/3 cups (575 mL) 


I had never heard of "saskatoons". They are also known as "juneberries" and as "shadberries" or "service berries.". I don't guess they grow in the Southern US.
