This recipe came from Berea College, Berea, KY, when I was in the home economics class there in 1960. It is so easy to make because it requires very little effort...I like that:)! It never fails! Everyone in my family loves it, and I find that I have to double the recipe each time I make it for a family of four. The recipe supposedly serves four; however, not my four!
