It was my turn to bake last week, which is a rarity. Headed into our 1950 Mennonite Community Cookbook and something simple: “Dream Cake”. Pastry crumble is topped with a coconut-walnut-brown sugar concoction. This recipe probably dates back a hundred years and is one of many in this collection from simpler times. Wording throughout the book includes phrases such as “add a cup of fat”, and my personal favorite “cook until done”. Indeed.
