This recipe belonged to her grandmother on her mother's side,
Lily Butt of Carbonear/Old Perlican.
This past Friday the Intangible Cultural Heritage Office hosted Nan's Cookbook: Tea and Talk at The Cupids Legacy Centre. It was a lovely afternoon where we invited people to bring out their favorite old cookbooks and recipes and share their memories of cooking and baking.
Along with Mary Ellen Wright, Professional Development and Outreach Officer with the Association of Newfoundland and Labrador Archives, we provided advice on scanning and preserving these documents for long term access and how to best preserve the original cookbooks and recipes, which for many are family heirlooms.

This was her mother's recipe and Saunders notes,
"We used to have this with fruit and jelly for dessert on Sundays."
