My Great Great Grandmother Eliza Griffin Andrews immigrated from England to Canada to the United States of America.

She had a large family, they traveled in covered wagons. She cooked over an open fire and made wonderful things like this recipe to keep her children happy and energized...

I am so lucky to have so many of her recipes that have survived all these years! I hope you will try it.

The photo is of her daughter Charlotte Andrews Kennedy... I was a little girl when my great grandma died... but remember her so well... Families Are Forever!
