Dianne in Wisconsin was asking for a smaller size rhubarb cake. This is one we've always enjoyed.

Royal Rhubarb Cake Recipe

2 cups fresh rhubarb, cut in 1/2" pieces
(measure after cutting up)
3/4 cup sugar plus 3 tbsp. sugar, divided
1 cup plus 2 tbsp. flour, divided
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. grated orange rind
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup butter
1 egg, well beaten
3 tbsp. milk
2 tbsp. fresh orange juice

Put rhubarb in bowl and sprinkle with mixture of 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tbsp. flour, cinnamon and grated orange rind, stir together and put in a 9 inch square pan. In another bowl, mix 1 cup flour, 2 tbsp. sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles corn meal. Add egg and milk and mix well. Put batter on top of rhubarb mixture and spread evenly with a spatula.

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. While cake is baking, mix together orange juice and 1 tbsp. sugar. Pour over cake and bake 15 minutes longer. When serve, flip pieces upside down onto plates and serve with whipped cream, if desired.

Myron I also was born in Kansas (Goessel) raised in Kansas (Newton), wed in Kansas (Newton) and will be buried in Kansas (Newton) - as the song goes. I remember goulash well but we normally didn't have tomatoes because they were too expensive so used catsup. Also I added a small amount of chili powder - not too much as then we were not into the spicy things. Thanks for the memories.
Janis now in Texas.

Enjoyed Mr. Myron Drinkwater - Lake Forest, CA about the way he remembers things being. Same at our house my Mother and Grandmother washed on Monday, ironed on Tues. We always had home made bread. My father said store bought bread wasn't fit for the hogs to eat. Mom and Mom-mom always wore a girdle, a dress and a starched apron. This was every day attire. Thanks for the memories.

You have the "BEST" newsletter around!!!! We are looking for Bourbon Chicken recipe...any help out there?

This is for the person who wanted a small cake. I make this every year when strawberries are in season. I slice the strawberries in simple syrup and serve it over a piece of this cake and top with whipped cream. Good with sliced peaches as well.

I have been a member of your newsletter group since you started it in 1996. I remember back then that you mentioned you collected calendars from all over the world to use with the children you teach. Are you still collecting calendars? I picked up an extra one (from New Zealand) when I was there and want to send it to you.

I still collect calendars and use them when I tutor students.  I love them too.  Thank you for asking.

Ellen in Boston was asking for casseroles using ground beef, macaroni and tomatoes that would be kid-pleasing. This is one of our favorites.

We eat chicken often, and I have many wonderful recipes in my collection, but chose this one and hope that Sandra will enjoy it as much as we do. I doubled the sauce mixture, as it didn't seem to be enough to coat that much chicken, but copied the recipe as is.

Cracker Crusted Oven-Fried Chicken Recipe

3 lb. chicken, cut up
1/2 cup dairy sour cream
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. celery salt
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 cups cracker crumbs (I use Ritz crackers)

Mix together all but cracker crumbs and chicken. Coat chicken with the mixture and refrigerate for 1 hour, or more. Roll chicken pieces in the cracker crumbs. Bake at 375 for 1 hour.

I used to have a great recipe for Mississippi mud cake. Is there anyone that would share a tried and true recipe for Mississippi mud cake?

I’m looking for a recipe for fruit salad. It’s sweet, has bananas, strawberries, grapes, and apples. You fold it into a mixture of sweet white sauce. Does anyone know how to make this or what is in the sauce?

I have an old box of cream of tartar that I am wondering what to do with. It was given to me by my mom. Does anyone know what its for?

Thanks for all your wonderful recipes Nancy. Our church has a Pastor Appreciation dinner coming up this Saturday and I am looking forward to making some of the recipes that you have listed. Our 3 and 6 year old sons are looking forward helping mommy with the dessert list :).
Thanks again, Janis in KY

I am a teacher. This summer am putting together OLD recipes from way back...I am looking for recipes to use in my classroom back from WWII when items had to be rationed and people were using victory gardens. Any stories about World II and rationing would be great too. I would like to share them with my 8th grade students.

Good morning Nancy,
Oh my I was thrilled with all the responses to my request for smaller cakes. Nancylanders always come thru. Newsletter looks great today.
Dianne in Wisconsin

I was reminded of this recipe by reading Ann's inquiry in the 6/23 newsletter. I have never made a hot dog strata as she described it. I hope she tries her idea and lets us know how she likes it. This is again a very old recipe.

Hi Nancy,
I think I was in some of your classes at West Texas A&M University. I think we had several classes together including a graduate course in Human Development under Dr. Sells. You were always prepared for all his weekly quizzes. I was impressed with your ability to take 12 hours of graduate work and still stay on top of the massive reading that we had to do in his classes every week. I really dreaded his weekly pop quizzes.

I thought you might be the same Nancy because of your cat you named Siggy. I remember Dr. Sells thought Sigmund Freud Kitty was not an appropriate name for a cat.
Mary Ellen now in New Zealand.

Yes, I am the same Nancy. I remember that Dr. Sells was not happy that I named another cat Anna O. (Anna O was Sigmund Freud's famous patient.) Both Siggy and Annie died a few years back and I have two other cats now, Ditto and Little One. So glad to hear from you.

This may be another cake recipe that Chris Portugal might want. It is very old. I have read that you can use the two step angel food cake mix, but have not tried it. (If mix contains a separate egg white package, mix gelatin together only with flour package.) I have also read that you can substitute the appropriate flavor of fruit juice for all or part of the water listed for the cake mix, but have not done this either. Example use orange juice if using orange gelatin. Some people call this cotton candy cake.

Jello Angel Food Cake Recipe

1 box one step angel food cake mix
1 3 ounce any flavor gelatin
fruit slices to compliment the flavor of the gelatin -optional)

Fluffy Fruit Frosting
1 small box same flavor gelatin used in cake
1 cup boiling water
1 container (9 ounce) Cool Whip

Prepare cake mix as directed on package, folding dry gelatin into 1/3 of the batter. Alternately spoon batters into ungreased 10-inch tube pan. Using spatula, zigzag through batters to create marbleized effect.
Bake on lowest rack at 375 degrees F for 40 to 45 minutes until cake springs back when lightly pressed.

Turn pan upside down over funnel or bottle to cool completely. Remove from pan. While cake is cooling, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Chill until slightly thickened; blend in Cool Whip.

Frost cake; garnish with fruit slices, if desired. Refrigerate.

Jello Cake Recipes
Chris, from Portugal requested recipes for cakes where dry Jello is added to the cake batter and baked in the cake. Here are two I frequently make, so I hope this is what she is looking for?

My friend Blanche shared this wonderful versatile recipe with me many years ago and just called it "Jello Cake". I like it because you can use any flavor of Jello and also any fruit juice in the glaze. I prefer raspberry Jello and fresh-squeezed orange juice for the glaze.

Blanche's Jello Cake

1 white, or yellow cake mix
1 pkg. (6 oz.) Jello, any flavor
1-1/3 cups water
1 cup flour
4 eggs
3/4 cup cooking oil

Beat with electric mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes. Put batter in greased and floured 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. cool 20 minutes and poke holes in the top with a meat fork. Spoon glaze over. Cool before serving.

2 cups powdered sugar
Juice of 2 oranges
Beat together in small bowl and spoon over top of warm cake.

This cake won me 1st prize in a local baking contest several years ago. This is a lovely show-stopper party cake.

Fresh Strawberry Jello Cake

1 pkg. white cake mix
2 tbsp. flour
1 pkg. (3 oz.) strawberry Jello
3/4 cup cooking oil
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup mashed fresh strawberries
4 eggs

1 pint (2 cups) whipping cream
4 tbsp. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Fresh sliced strawberries

Beat all ingredients together well at medium speed with electric mixer for 2 minutes. Pour batter into 2 well greased and floured 9 inch layer pans. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted cones out clean. Remove from pans after 10 minutes and cool completely. When cold, frost and fill with strawberry cream.

Whip whipping cream stiff with powdered sugar and vanilla. Add sliced fresh strawberries (the more the better). Fill and frost cold cake. Refrigerate before serving.

NOTE: If berries aren't too sweet, add a little sugar to to them and let sit for awhile and then drain well before adding to the whipped cream.

I'm hoping to find a low fat fried pie that can be baked. I'm diabetic and I realize this is an odd request, but one never knows unless one asks.
