Pineapple Betty Recipe - 23rd Vintage Recipe Thursday

Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve your own original vintage family recipes, or out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?

I'm also participating in Kristen's What Did You Bake Today? over at The Krazy Kitchen.


Are you looking forward to cooler Fall weather? I am! Being in California, I still have to wait until Halloween, but pineapple lovers in more moderate areas don't have to wait to enjoy this baked goody.

Pineapple Betty
1 1/2 cups crushed pineapple
1 cup soft bread crumbs
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup pineapple juice

Combine pineapple, bread crumbs, sugar, cinnamon, and pineapple juice. Mix by tossing lightly with 2 forks. Pour into well-buttered baking dish. Dot with butter. Bake in moderate oven (375 F.) until well browned. Serve with brown sugar sauce. 4 servings. Mrs. Edna Samsel, Pottstown, PA.

Use MckLinky if you are participating in Vintage Recipe Thursday.
What Did You Bake Today? participants should link on Kristen's post at The Krazy Kitchen.
It helps everyone if you leave a link to your participating recipe in McKlinky, rather than just to your main blog, and let us know what your recipe is.
Thank you for participating!
