OVEN CODDLED EGGS w/no water - 1933 recipe

Nancy J. Patrykus


I found this egg recipe in an old 1933 cooking book.
I had never heard of a oven coddled egg with no water...So
as long as I was baking a cake and the oven was hot...Why NOT!
It turned out perfect....
Now I can bake a cake and breakfast at the same time.
How is that for ingunity?????
