  I am looking for the recipe for Casada Cake please.  Thank You

Hello Unclesamjo,

Well, this one has some complexities. The name can be spelled several different ways: "casada", "cassada", "casata", or "cassata". The first and last seem to be the most used. My Italian food dictionary says that "cassata" is the correct spelling.

As if that weren't enough, the name(s) are applied to three distinctly different recipes: One is an ice cream dessert; one is a yellow cake with strawberries, and one is a ricotta cheesecake with chocolate. Of these, the last one seems to be the proper Italian "wedding cake" known as "cassata." However, some bakeries in America are selling the strawberry yellow cake as "casada", and that one seems to be what people are usually looking for the recipe of.

Anyhow, there are several versions below.


  Casada Cake Trifle

  1 box  yellow cake mix
  1 pkg. (5 oz.) vanilla instant pudding
  1 ctn  strawberry glaze
  1  qt. ctn.   strawberries, cleaned and sliced

  Bake cake according to directions on box and allow to cool. 
  Make instant pudding according to directions and refrigerate 
  for 2 to 3 hours.Put strawberries (reserve a few for the top) 
  in the glaze. Refrigerate for 1/2 hour. Assemble in a trifle bowl. 
  Cut cake so it will fit in bowl in three layers. Layer your cake, 
  pudding, strawberries and 1/3 of whipped topping, ending with the 
  whipped topping. Garnish with fresh strawberries.

     1/2 to 1 c. chopped filberts
     1/4 c. each red and green candied cherries
     2 c. whipped cream, whipped with 1/4 c. powdered sugar

     Preparation : 
        Prepare cake according to package directions, baking in bundt
     pan. Remove cake from pan.  When cake is completely cool, slice into
     3 layers.  For Filling:  Combine Ricotta cheese, sugar, almond
     extract, miniature chocolate chips, chopped filberts, and candied
     cherries.  Spread mixture between layers.  Frost cake with whipped
     cream, whipped with 1/4 cup powdered sugar.

     1 sm. box instant vanilla pudding
     1 sm. Cool Whip
     1 (8 oz.) cream cheese
     1/2 c. chopped nuts
     2 lg. cans crushed pineapple, drained

     Preparation : 
       Mix cake as directed on box.  Mix pudding while cake is baking and
     refrigerate. Soften cream cheese and beat with mixer.  Mix pudding
     and cream cheese together, put on top of cooled cake.  Put on

      Italian  Casada  Cheese  Cake

     Ingredients : 
     2 lbs. fine Ricotta cheese
     28 eggs
     2 c. sugar
     2 tsp. cinnamon
     1 box citron (may omit)
     1 (8 oz.) bottle maraschino cherries,
        chopped and drained
     1 (13 oz.) Hershey bar, grated

     Preparation : 
        Combine with electric mixer eggs and sugar until sugar is
     dissolved. Add Ricotta; mix thoroughly.  Add Hershey; mix again. 
     Pour into greased springform pans (2-8 inch or 1 large pan).  Drop
     in citron and cherries; sprinkle cinnamon on top.  It will make its
     own crust.  Bake at 350 degrees for 2-2 1/2 hours.  Check with
     tester until not wet in middle. 
Italian Wedding Cake (Cassada Cake)- Take a bundt style 
angel food cake and slice in three layers. In a bowl mix a 
large package of ricotta cheese, crushed up chocolate bars 
with nuts, sliced up a about ten maricchino cherries and pour 
a couple of spoonfuls of the liquid into the mixture and add 
powdered sugar to the mixture to taste and to thicken the 
consistency. A cup or so should do. Using heavy whipping crème, 
whip the crème with a little vanilla extract, no powdered sugar 
is really needed but add some if you wish. Frost the centers of 
the slices with the cheese and candy mixture. Then frost the 
cake with whip crème. It must be fresh whip crème, canned will
not hold it's shape. Garnish with grapes.

  I haver a memory from late childhood of "Wish-Bone Creamy Ceaser" 
  Dressing. They have discontinued this... I used to eat 'gallons'

  Goddess" on the shelves. I have searched the web for months with

Hello David,

When a company discontinues a favorite product, it's like losing an old friend. No other brand is quite the same.

I couldn't locate a knock-off recipe for the Wishbone dressing. I'm sending you some creamy caesar salad dressing recipes that you can try. You might try "Newman's Own" Creamy Caesar Salad Dressing. It's quite good.

  any ideas on how to make

  ketsup - no sugar


Hi Linda,

Well, I had mixed results on this. Almost all homemade ketchup recipes contain sugar, because they are attempting to taste like commercial ketchup, which usually has added sugar. Heinz does have a reduced sugar version now.

The first recipe below is the only one that I found that didn't call for added sugar. The second recipe only calls for 7 TBSP sugar, so it might be easy to omit the sugar from. All of the others call for at least a cup of sugar. You could try using sugar substitute or omitting the sugar altogether from any of these recipes. However, without some sort of sweetener, your final product isn't going to taste like what comes out of the bottle.


  Heirloom Tomato Ketchup 

  Peel 4 quarts tomatoes and place in a kettle with 2 quarts vinegar, 
  6 chopped red peppers, 4 tablespoons salt, black pepper, 2 tablespoons 
  dry mustard, and 3 tablespoons allspice. Boil for 4 hours until thickened. 
  Bottle, seal, and serve as a condiment for meat and fish. 
  Tomato Ketchup 

  10 pounds tomato, dead-ripe
  1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  4 large onions, chopped
  1-1/2 cups cider vinegar
  2 garlic cloves, crushed
  1 tsp peppercorns
  1 tsp whole allspice
  1 tsp whole cloves
  5 cinnamon sticks
  1 tsp celery seed
  1/2 tsp dry mustard
  1/4 tsp cayenne
  4 tbsp brown sugar, packed firm
  3 tbsp granulated sugar
  1 tsp salt

  Cut tomatoes in quarters and puree them in food processor along with 
  bell pepper. Strain puree through a coarse sieve to remove skins and 
  seeds. (You can dump the puree into a colander and work it through with 
  your hands until there is nothing left in the colander but a dryish pulp 
  of skins and seeds.) Now puree onions, combine with tomato and pepper 
  puree, and pour into a large stainless steel or enameled kettle. Cook and 
  stir occasionally over low heat until it is reduced by about a third and 
  is considerably thicker. 

  Meanwhile put garlic, peppercorns, allspice, cloves, cinnamon, and celery 
  seed into the vinegar in a small pot and simmer covered for 1/2 hour to 
  steep spices in the vinegar. Pour about half the spiced vinegar through a 
  tea strainer into the thickened tomato mixture. Stir. Also add sugar, 
  mustard, cayenne, and salt at this point. 

  Here is where the tasting comes in. You can adjust any of these 
  ingredients to suit you. You can add more spiced vinegar. Or a 
  little plain vinegar. More or less sugar, mustard, cayenne. Just 
  sort of tinker with it. Cook it some more, stirring often, until 
  it looks like catsup should look. Taste and adjust again. You may 
  notice that it looks slightly curdled. Not to worry. Hit it a lick 
  in the food processor. Smooths right out. Pour into sterile jars 
  leaving 1/8" of head space. Process in a boiling water bath 15 minutes

Vienna Roll Pan

  Subject: Vienna Roll Pan

  I have  recently been given a "Vienna Roll Pan #1. It is a cast 
  iron pan by Griswold (I found a picture of it among cast ironware 

  I would like to know how it was used and exactly what kind of 
  bread/muffin was made in it. I am an avid cook and baker of over 
  30 years' experience. 

Hello Manuel,

I found several photos of these "Vienna Roll Pans" in collections for sale online, such as here, at:
The Pan-Handler
However, I found nothing about the history of the pans. I did find that the common hot dog "bun" is said to be descended from the Vienna Roll. Around 1900 an enterprising sausage vendor put his sausage between the halves of a split Vienna roll and called them "red hots".

I found some recipes for "Vienna Rolls", but they seem to be of two types: one a hard roll and one a soft roll. The recipes are below. There's a photo of "Vienna Rolls" at:

All of this just seems to confuse the issue. I even found one reference that equated "Vienna rolls" with "Kaiser rolls." All I can say for sure is that your pan was used to bake small torpedo shaped bread rolls about the size of a hot dog bun. Since they were used as hot dog buns, maybe they were originally soft, rather than the hard crusty "Vienna rolls" that some of the recipes are for.


  Soft Rolls 

  fresh yeast  3 ounces
  water - cold water  2# 8 ounces 
  dry milk  4 ounces 
  bread flour  5# 
  salt  1.5 ounces 
  sugar  6 ounces 
  butter - softened  8 ounces 
  eggs  8 ounces 
  mixing: straight Dough Mixing Method

  1) In a Hobart bowl, place in the yeast and water and dissolve with 
  your hand, then mix in the dry milk. Top with the flour, salt, sugar, 
  butter and eggs.
  2) Using a dough hook, mix on 1st speed for 3 minutes, then 2nd speed 
  for 7 minutes.
  3) Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, and allow to rise for 
  1 hour. Covered.
  4) Punch-down, and scale into 1.75 to 2 ounce pieces (this makes a nice 
  sized dinner roll).
  5) Round each piece of dough, and allow them to "bench rest" on a floured 
  bench for 20 minutes, covered. Then shape these rounds into many forms. 
  Example: Vienna rolls, Knot rolls, Parker House rolls, Cloverleaf rolls, 
  Club rolls, and Butterflake rolls, etc. Egg wash, and place on a parchment 
  lined sheetpan.
  6) Proof until doubled in size (30-45 minutes).
  7) Bake @ 400 degrees.
  Crusty Water Rolls (Vienna Rolls) 
  Source: Source: Mary Margaret McBride Encyclopedia of Cooking 1959/1960

  1 pkg. active dry yeast
  1 cup warm water
  1 T. sugar
  1 tsp. salt
  2 T. melted shortening
  About 4 cups sifted flour
  1 egg white, beaten

  Soften yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. To the remaining warm water 
  add sugar, salt and shortening. Add 1 cup flour, beating well. 
  Add yeast and egg whites. Mix thoroughly. Add enough more flour 
  to make soft dough. Knead until smooth and satiny, 5 to 8 minutes.

  Shape into buns or Vienna rolls. Place 2 1/2 inches apart on 
  greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 
  45 minutes.

  Before baking, place a large flat pan filled with boiling water 
  on bottom of oven to give crustiness. Bake in very hot oven (450°F) 
  20 minutes. Makes 2 dozen large rolls.
  Hard or Vienna Rolls

  Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
  - -------- ------------ --------------------------------
  4 cups all-purpose flour
  1/4 cup 105° - 115° water
  1 package dry yeast
  1 cup warm water
  1 tablespoon sugar
  1 teaspoon salt
  2 tablespoons shortening
  2 stiffly beaten egg whites

  Add enough of the sifted flour to make a soft dough. Knead, and allow the
  dough to rise twice. After the second rising, punch down and knead about 1
  minute, then let rest, covered, about 10 minutes before shaping into 12
  oblong pieces. Place them about 3 inches apart on a greased baking sheet. 
  To ensure a hard crust, have in the oven a 9 x 13-inch pan filled with 1/2
  inch boiling water. Bake at once in a preheated 450° oven about 20
  minutes or until golden brown.
