In the mid 1970’s, I was given two church cookbooks; neither was from the church I attended at the time. One was given as a wedding gift.
On the outside they look grimy and faded, smeared with ingredients and an occasional chocolate fingerprint, but inside they are filled with tasty recipes, some passed down through generations, others perfected by their own changes.Two of my favorites:
Mississippi Mud Cake
Sour Cream Raisin Pie and Pie Crust
A final note. Because I used to have two family members who didn't like coconut, I've never put coconut in the cake recipe. However, I may try that one day since I LOVE coconut and chocolate together.
