This recipe is from Aunt Rhea’s mother’s (Marie) father, Julius Rickel(, who died in 1933.) That’s all the info I have on the handwritten recipe. Not much more.
How to bake a Family Favorite recipe that hails from Germany. I copied it down from Aunt Rhea. Sunday before I left Ohio I dropped into the Kroger and bought what I needed
Aunt Rhea married my mother’s brother Robert.
She’s 98 years old today and celebrating, too.
I plan to call her up and ask if there’s anything else to know about this particular recipe.
Love to you.
