Subject: American apple cake
Hi. Collected recipe cards from Marguerite Patten in 60s. One recipe cannot
find and forgotten ingredients after 50 years. American Apple cake. It had
grated cheese in dough must u 're with sliced apples, honey and cinnamon on
top?. Can you help please? Pamela
I cannot find any mention at all of a Marguerite Patten recipe called
"American" Apple Cake. However, I did find three "apple cake" recipes by
her, but none of them has honey. The first two are traditional cakes, with
flour in the batter, but neither of them has cheese in the batter and the
first one has no cinnamon topping. The third one does have cheese in the
batter, but it is not a tradition flour batter. It's more like a pudding or
custard. It does have a cinnamon and apple topping, but it does not have any
honey. See the recipes here:

Baking Making and Crafting
These are all that I can find from Marguerite Patten. I'll post this for
Thank you Phaedrus. It sounds like third recipe. I know you put cheese in with flour and margarine,
and Madeline a scone mix. Then sliced apples on top with sugar and melted butter.
Much appreciated, Pamela

I hope this email finds you in good health and spirits.
In response to this request:http://www.hungrybrowser.com/phaedrus/m1207M15.htm#1
I think this is the recipe card, nearly identical to the third recipe you posted:
And here it is, transcribed from a blog:
Swiss roll tin, 7 X 10 inches
Heat your oven to 425F/200°C/Gas mark 6
Oven position: just above center
10oz (285g) self raising flour
1 level tsp baking powder
1oz (30g) castor sugar
3/4 tsp salt
4oz (115g) butter/ margarine
2oz (60g) grated hard cheese
¼ (140mls) pint of milk (may not use all of it)
4 eating apples
2-3 oz brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tb melted butter
Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar & salt.Rub in the butter/ margarine until the mix resembles breadcrumbs.
Mix in grated cheese. Add enough milk to mix up to a soft but not sticky dough. Knead on a floured board, lightly.
Pat into swiss roll tin. Pare and core the apples, slice thinly, arrange in rows across dough. Sprinkle with brown
sugar and cinnamon mixed together. Brush with melted butter. Bake for 20-25 mins.
Doing well, thanks. Hope you are, too. I hope you had a good Thanksgiving and will have happy holidays ahead.
Thanks for the recipe. I’ll send it on to the requestor.
Thank you so much for THE RECIPE!!!! Pamela

Subject: Jimmy's Hot dog chili recipe?
The best chili I ever had was 'Jimmy's Hot dog chili' in Albany Georgia in the 1970's. Its not possible to get it
now because I live so far away but they are still in business. I hope you find a clone.
Jimmie's Hot Dogs
Sorry, I had no success. All I can find are rave reviews of Jimmie's Hot Dogs. It appears that no one has had
any success at all in obtaining this hot dog chili recipe or even in making a chili that tastes like it.
I’ll post this on my site for reader input.

Subject: Lost recipe
I had a recipe for lasagna that used a Parmesan cheese sauce in place of
ricotta, mozzarella etc. I remember It started with lots of well sautéed
onions, milk & lots of Parmesan cheese. Unbelievably good. !! Better than
the usual cheeses really. May have had some other ingredients but the three
above were the main ones. Please help !! ?? Ann
The recipe at this link and the two below are the only ones that I can find
that have only Parmesan cheese:
You don't say what kind of meat, if any, was in your recipe, or where you
got the recipe originally. These all have ground beef. There might be
others with chicken or that are vegetarian that have only Parmesan cheese.
1 jar spaghetti sauce and 1 lb. ground
beef (together for meat sauce)
1 box lasagna, cook and have ready
4 tbsp. flour
2 c. milk
1 sm. onion, chopped
2 egg yolks
8 tbsp. butter
3/4 c. Parmesan cheese
Cook onions in butter. Mix in flour. Add cheese and a dash of salt.
Gradually stir in milk and cook over low heat, stirring constantly until
thick. Beat egg yolks; add a little cheese sauce to yolks and then add
yolks-cheese sauce to remainder of cheese sauce. Cook, low heat, for 10
minutes. Layer the meat sauce, noodles, and cheese sauce. Sprinkle
Parmesan cheese (or Mozzarella) on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes
or until heated through. Then broil until cheese is golden.
