Hello June,

See below.


Boston Molasses Recipes, 1920s

New England Indian Pudding Recipe

4 cups milk
1/2 cup Indian meal (course corn meal)
2/3 cup molasses
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups cold milk

Scald 4 cups milk, add Indian meal slowly, stirring constantly until thick, then add 
molasses and salt. Remove from heat, put in buttered baking dish and add 2 cups cold milk. 
Bake in slow oven 300 degrees Fahrenheit, for 3 hours. Serve warm with plain cream or 
vanilla ice cream. Variations include: adding a half teaspoon of cinnamon and ginger if 
spicy pudding is desired, or add one cup of figs cut in thin strips before baking.
Indian Pudding, Boston Recipe

2 heaping Tbs. corn meal
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup molasses (Use Grandma's no other brand, especially the southern ones)
1 TBS butter
1 quart of milk

Place milk and butter in a saucepan.  Scald milk.  Mix sugar, molasses
and cornmeal in a 2 1/2 quart baking dish.  Add scalded milk slowly,
stirring well.  Bake 2 hours at 350 degrees, stiring every half hour.  The
cornmeal will tend to lump up, and when you stir it, break up all the
lumps.  The pudding will be done when it is brown and looks like Indian
pudding.  Serve hot or cold with ice cream or whipped cream.

Use whole milk and don't cover the puddin while it cooks.

1/2 cup yellow cornmeal 

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. 
In a bowl mix 1 1/2 cups of the milk with the molasses, sugar, butter, salt, baking powder, 
egg, and cornmeal. Pour the mixture into a stone crock that has been well greased and bake 
until it boils. 
Heat and stir in the remaining 1 1/2 cups milk. 
Lower the oven temperature to 300 degrees F and bake for 5 to 7 hours. Serve warm with whipped

Hello Lorie,

No recipes recipes from the Town Diner, but below are two others.

1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. oatmeal
1/2 c. soft butter
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 lg. egg


Mix well: 1 3/4 c. powdered sugar 2-3 tbsp. milk 1 tsp. vanilla 1/4 c. peanut butter
Generously grease 13x9x2 pan. Stir together flour and baking soda. Stir in sugars and oatmeal. 
Add peanut butter, butter and egg. Mix until crumbly. Press into bottom of 13x9x2 pan. Bake

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Pie

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup corn syrup -- light or dark
1 1/4 cups oatmeal
1 stick butter or margarine -- melted
1 tsp Wonder brand flavoring --- or vanilla extract
2 eggs -- beaten
3/4 cup peanut butter -- creamy
1 9" pie crust

Mix sugar through eggs together. Stir in peanut butter. Let sit about 15 minutes to allow 
the oatmeal to soak up the filling a bit. Pour into pie crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 
45 to 50 minutes. Cool a bit before cutting. 

Use any pie crust you like (or none at all; the pie sets up quite firm once it cools). 
I like the peanut butter pie crust for this pie. 

Peanut Butter Pie Crust: 
1-1/2 cups pulverized peanut butter cookies (including the filling). Add 5 TBSP melted butter, 
mix together. Pat into pie shell & pre-bake for about 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees F.

In the mid-70's when I was a young woman I made a wildly popular strawberry walnut 
quick bread, a recipe from Bon Appetite, I believe.  I have searched and searched to 
no avail.  Can you help?  Sandy 

Hi Sandy,

There is no strawberry walnut quick bread recipe on the Bon Appetit website. There is no strawberry walnut quick bread recipe on the Epicurious website, which has the Bon Appetit archives. There is no strawberry walnut quick bread recipe on the general Internet via Google that mentions Bon Appetit magazine.

If the recipe has been posted on the Internet by someone without mentioning that it is from Bon Appetit magazine, then I need a unique name or a list of unique ingredients in order to find it.

the new recipe is now called

Phaedrus Oven Cheesiest

Chop Hard Boiled Eggs.Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.

Cook in the broiler,on tin foil until it begins to brown and gets a few black spots.
