This is a favorite with all guests at the Knox "Park Model" in Apache Wells.
It feeds a very large group, which isn't unusual at Knoxes.

Yorkshire Dessert Pudding

Everyone has had Yorkshire Pudding smothered in gravy with roast beef.
Did you know it was originally a dessert pudding?
I saw this on a TV cooking show and had to try it. It's unique and down-home delicious!
Try replacing traditional bread or rice pudding with this to astound your guests with your culinary wisdom.

2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
2 cups milk
4 eggs slightly beaten
about 3/4 cup "thick" cream (see note)
pancake syrup

Stir together flour and salt. Add milk and whisk until smooth. Whisk in beaten eggs. This mixture should rest at least 15 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 400 F. Spray the sides of a 9x13 pan with shortening, then add enough cooking oil to cover the bottom of the pan. 5 minutes before supper, place the pan in the oven for 3 minutes to preheat. Re-stir the mix, remove the pan and add the pudding mixture all at once. Let the pudding bake for 30 minutes while you are having supper. With a large spoon dig out pieces of pudding and transfer to the required number of good sized dessert dishes. Make sure everyone gets some golden brown "top crust". Spread the thick cream over each dish and top with a healthy drizzle of syrup. Serve immediately. Serves 6-8. Recipe may be halved and baked in an 8x8 pan.
(Note) I found Carnation Thick Cream at Safeway in small "pull-top" 170ml cans. Thick cream is the same as "creme freche" or "clotted cream". Look in the supermarket section where they have the evaporated and condensed milk.

Apple Angel Delight

This recipe is originally supplied by Alberta Milk Producers, but we found it in our program when we attended the Jubilations Dinner Theatre. They call it a “tradition worth waiting for.”

1 small angel food cake, about 7" in diameter.  I use half of a large cake.
1 1/2 cups real whipping cream, or be cautious and use cool whip
2 tbsp. icing sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
14 oz. can apple sauce
a cup flaked almonds, toasted

Tear angel food cake into chunks.
In a mixing bowl, whip real whipping cram and icing sugar until stiff peaks form.
Set aside one cup of the whipped cream mixture. Blend cinnamon into apple sauce.
In a deep glass serving bowl, arrange alternating layers of cake, whipped cream, and applesauce until the bowl is full, ending with applesauce.
Spread reserved whipped cram over top, then sprinkle with toasted almonds.
Refrigerate until serving time. Makes 6-8 servings. Preparation time 10 minutes. Enjoyment value, priceless.
