1930s woman cooking


What can you eat if you are living on what you had stored?

These are meals that we eat on a daily basis. They are frugal meals, and they are made using items from my pantry shelves and my garden. Sometimes they include a few inexpensive additions. I use the seasonal menus when planning what I'm going to make each day. Check out the category headings for different types of recipes, or use the Recipe Index.

Featured Recipe:

Puffed Pancake 600 2

Puffed Pancake

3 Tbsp butter
3 eggs (powdered eggs will not work for this)
2/3 cup milk (reconstituted powdered is fine)
¾ cup all-purpose flour
½ tsp vanilla extract
powdered sugar
Thawed frozen blueberries, canned peaches, canned pears, fresh berries, fresh fruit, or your topping of choice.

Preheat the oven to 450º.

Melt the butter in a 9-inch pie pan (I use a glass one) in the oven (watch that it doesn't burn).

Meanwhile, whisk the eggs and milk, then sift in the flour, whisking it until well combined. Mix in the vanilla extract.

Remove the pie pan carefully from the oven and pour in the mixture. On a low shelf, bake for 20 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown.

Remove from the oven. Pancake will fall as it cools.

Serve filled with fruit. Dust with powdered sugar.

Notes: I get my flour, vanilla, butter, and powdered sugar in bulk from Sam's Club. I buy eggs when they go on sale for .99 a dozen.
