This recipe was inspired by a 1940s newspaper recipe entitled “Peach Cup Pudding.” Doesn’t that alone make you want to bake it? I love historical and vintage recipes and stories, in fact, let’s just call it what it is, a full on infatuation. They don’t use processed ingredients and are much more frugal and healthier than a lot of modern recipes. Are you with me?

I love vintage recipes, they're frugal and real food ingredients. This is from her great-grandmother and a World War II victory economy bulletin. How awesome is that?
