My grandmother used to make it - then my mom got the recipe...It was a favorite of ours for years and still simple too. Sorry I couldn't add the prep time-this is a really old recipe so things may vary a bit now with the new appliances altho I still stick to what it says. Maybe it is because it gives me time to reminisce!!!
