Recipe by cajunhippiegirl

"All southern women are brought up to be able to make several dishes. This is one of them. This is the same recipe that my Maw-Maw used. She served it plain with powdered sugar on top, with strawberries & homemade whipped cream. If you were lucky she would toast you a piece for breakfast, and you could have it with one of her homemade jam's or jellies."

This goes in the keeper file. Perfection served with whipped cream and fresh seasonal fruit.
