Greetings, Old Thymers. Long thyme no see! Sorry that I have not updated lately. I hope 1to post more often!

Today’s selections are from an old handwritten cookbook purchased at a garage sale. I have already expressed my love for hand written books like this. They are irreplaceable, in my opinion.


Banana Cocoanut Roll

Rub six bananas through a sieve add a little cream – sugar – orange juice and cocoanut – mix + keep warm. Beat 3 eggs with 3/4 cup sugar for 10 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons cream, 1 teaspoon orange extract, 1 tablespoon melted butter, and 1 cup flour sifted with
2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Bake*. Spead with the banana mixture and roll. Sprinkle with additional cocoanut.

*I would bake in a proper jelly roll pan lined with parchment paper that has been buttered at 350 for 12-15 minutes to start.
