Each week, we’re pulling a classic recipe out of the State Journal archives and sharing it here as it was originally printed years ago. Remember, ingredients and cooking techniques change over time so you may want to make some adjustments when trying out a classic recipe.

This week’s recipe took honorable mention in the State Journal’s low-calorie recipe category in 1962 and was submitted by Mrs. Alvin T. Nygaard of Madison.
