Recipe by celnice

This is an old wartime recipe given to me by my husband's grandmother over 30 years ago. Notice that it uses no eggs or added fat. It is a family favorite on holidays and for a healthy breakfast spread with low-fat cream cheese. I use a variety of pan sizes, varying the baking times and testing with an instant read thermometer for doneness (190-205 degrees).
