Hi Pam,

Sorry, I cannot find anything quite like that. It sounds like some sort of kugel, but I could not locate a kugel recipe with cream and berries.

Hopewell Hash

In York County SC,in the Hopewell community it has been a tradition for many 
years to host the Hopewell Hash & Singing. They make a beef hash that is 
outstanding. They will only say that it has beef,onions, and butter with 
minimal spices and No potatoes.I know they cook it outside in an iron pot 
until it is like mush and they serve it over rice. I would appreciate any 
help in finding this recipe or anything like it.
By the way, I love your site and it has found recipes I couldnt find 
anywhere else.

Thanks

Jerry 
Hopewell Hash

5 lb lean round roast, cubed like for stew
cook in pot of water for 2 hours (bring to boil then simmer)
drain pot

chop up or shred meat
put back in pot with more water
add 1 1/2 lbs chopped onions 
1 1/2 oz of salt and 1 1/2 oz pepper
cook 6 hours at 225-250
add 1/2 lb butter and let cook another hour
try without vinegar first

suggestion

if serving over rice, add 1/4 cup of vinegar
if serving with slaw, mustard , and bun you can leave out vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

White's Bakery

Hello- from shirley-flint, mi formerly owosso, Mi   
Back in the 1970-80's there was a White's Bakery in Owosso, Mich.
They had the only Triangle Donut with the Bavarian Cream filling.
I was young and didn't get to ask then on radio" WFDF 91 Betty 
Clark party line" if she could find or then get that recipe.
I now hope you may have some access to find that recipe or someone
 who now makes them.

thank you for trying 

It was triangle shape - the filling was out of this world.The only
thing close was a vanilla cream topping for a bread pudding.
I don't have that recipe. only tasted that in Las Vegas

Greg, a reader, sends this:

I was reading your website and the "recent case" of "White's Bakery" in 
Owosso, Michigan and their donut triangles caught my eye...
 
I live in Owosso, and there is a donut shop (called "Benny's" on 723 W. Main Street - 
formerly "Betty's") that still makes the triangles with the bavarian creme filling... 
I suppose that you could either direct your reader to Benny's, or you could contact 
the owner and see if he'll share the recipe...
 
Good luck - and happy hunting!
 
Sincerely,
 
Greg
