This is served especially around Easter time, but it's wonderful any day! Thick slices toasted or plain, tempting with butter, but delicious as is. Round and high, shiny and golden brown outside, and a beautiful rich yellow inside. This came from the 1954 cookbook,Vineyard Fare,first edition, and later it appeared in the 1963 edition, by the same volunteer,Mrs. Charles G. Norton.
