Ozark Bakeless Pudding (1953)

READY IN: 12hrs 10mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

This is one of a number of historical recipes I am posting from my cookbook collection. It is adapted from the 1953 edition of Adventures in Good Cooking, by traveling salesman and food critic Duncan Hines, and featuring recipes collected from around the USA. This recipe is from Hotel Taneycomo in Rockaway Beach, Missouri. If the use of raw eggs concerns you, use pasteurized eggs. The can size is a guess; the recipe specifies only a "small" can. Peaches may be substituted for the pineapple. Cooking time is chilling time.

I have used raw eggs in this recipe when my kids were just young ones they are now married with kids of their own and no one has gotten sick. It is delicious and well worth making. It has been years since I have made it but jumped into my head and decided it was time to make it again.
