When I was a child, we would often go to an old couple's home with them after church on Sunday for a huge lunch. They lived on a farm in an old house so far back on their property it couldn't be seen from the road. I loved the big old farm house, playing with their grandchildren, and crossing the pasture fences on stiles. This is a recipe she gave my mother probably 55 or so years ago.

1 cup jam or jelly
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. soda, level
6 tbs. buttermilk
4 tbsp. melted butter
1 1/3 cups flour
1 egg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
Bake slow at 300 or 325 until set. Put some lemon pudding over the top when this is done. Top with egg whites (meringue), if desired.
