Said the author of The Laura Secord Canadian Cookbook: "The Home Cookbook, published in Toronto in 1879, included a recipe for Toronto Pie. Although continuing as a family favorite, the name slipped into disuse during the intervening years. A delicate, hot-milk sponge cake split and filled with raspberry jam, Toronto Pie belongs in the same family as Boston Cream Pie. During my 30+ years of living in Toronto, I have never heard of this cake."
Maybe not, but it sure sounds good! I haven't tried this yet. I chose it for Zaar World Tour II.
This recipe is from C.A. Lynd of lyndsgourmet.com. Every year we anxiously wait for Lynd's farm to put out their peaches. They gave us this recipe with the peaches I just bought and it is simple and wonderful.
I call this "impossible-style" because although it makes its own crust as it bakes as all the traditional "impossible" pies do, it does not use commercial biscuit baking mix. Instead it uses fresh, scratch ingredients, and that, along with the fact that you are not adding all those chemicals the mixes contain,is what I think gives this pie such a good flavor. It is one of my favorite desserts, and I always get really nice compliments every time I serve it.
This recipe fits perfectly into my 10-inch quiche pan, but I often halve the ingredients (except for the baking powder which I keep at 1/2 tsp.) and bake it in a 8 or 9 inch pie pan instead. The results are just as good. Hope you enjoy it.
This is my favorite pie crust. I have yet to make it right, with all cold ingredients, so if you don't have time to chill the flour etc, it will be fine. I also have never made this in my food processor-- just with my good old pastry blender and a bowl.
I have used this for both sweet and savory dishes.
Work time includes 1 hour chill time (I do not always do this either...)
From Sunset cookbook. I love this! It's my favorite pie. You get a lemon curd on the bottom and a thin lemon cake on the top but it pours into the pie crust all mixed up! Please use fresh squeezed lemon juice. If you love lemon desserts, you'll love this!
