Cherry Kuga

Vintage Recipe Thursday

This picture was taken of my Grandparents at their 50th Wedding Anniversary.  They have both passed away several years ago and baking this dessert took me right back to her kitchen.  Of course my Grandma's tasted better. No matter how hard I try, I just can't make things like she did! 
 (Maybe it's because she used Lard and all natural ingredients right from the farm)!

1 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 stick butter - if using unsalted butter, add just a pinch of salt into the mixture
2 cups flour

Work together until crumbly.  Take 1 cup crumbs out for topping.  Add 3/4 cup milk to the remaining crumbs.  Spread in pan and cover with one can cherry pie filling.  Then top with 1 cup of reserved crumbs.  Bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.

Lovely still life combining the vintage photo and the Cherry Kuga, especially with the pretty plate and the crochet placemat or tablecloth.
Farm fresh ingredients sure do make a difference. I'm going to try out your grandma's recipe. Thank you for participating in Vintage Recipe Thursday.

Everything's better with a big helping of sentiment :) I've never heard of this dessert, but it looks to be right up my alley skill-wise.
