“This recipe is from Margaret Rudkin, better known as the founder of the Pepperidge Farm Company. Her cookbook is long out of print but contains such a treasury of delicious recipes that I would encourage anyone who collects cookbooks to try to find a copy for themselves. This makes for a decadent Sunday morning breakfast.”
