Vintage 1950s Recipes - Overview
1 pkg. zweibach, rolled fine or Holland Rusk may be used.
1/2 c. melted butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. coconut
Save 1/2 c. crumbs. Mix rest of ingredients. Press into baking pan.
Bake about 10 minutes.
4 egg yolks, beaten
4 c. milk
3/4 c. sugar
3 T. cornstarch
1 t. vanilla
4 egg whites
4 T. sugar
Make a custard of yolks, milk, sugar, cornstarch, cooked until thick.
Add vanilla. Pour over first mixture. Beat whites with sugar until
stiff. Spread over custard. Spread the 1/2 c. crumbs over whites. Bake
until brown, about 10 minutes. Chopped nuts may added (sic) to crumbs
before baking. Serve with whipped cream.
I did not know what "zweibach" was (it seems to be spelled "zwieback"
usually). The only time I had heard of it before was in an episode of
M*A*S*H where Radar mentioned dunking zwieback in Bosco. I assumed from
that it was a type of plain cookie. However, it is sweet bread that has
been sliced and toasted until hard.
Look for another recipe tomorrow!
