This was one of those recipes from "grandma's secrets". It was a set of recipes you get every month until you finely screamed enough. I have had it 25-30 years and never tried it. Boy was that a mistake. I made it this morning and we loved it.

The top recipe is how it comes and makes a 11x7 pan.

The bottom recipe was my smaller conversion with changes of honey, and bluesberry crasins changes and makes an 8x8 pan
