This recipe came from my husband's "nanny". The lady that baby-sat, cleaned house, cooked supper for the family and was just a jewel of a person. She was with the family for 30 years. She had no recipe, this was "outta her head". She was still with the family when we married. I followed her around for days tryng to get measurements!
