Old Fashioned Banana Pudding from Dame’s Cookbook, 1973, Chick Anderson, Birmingham, Alabama

Yes, we have the cookbook.  See it here:  https://vintagecookbook.com/product/a-dames-cookbook-1973-chick-anderson-birmingham-alabama/

A Dame’s Cookbook, 1973, Chick Anderson, Birmingham, Alabama:  Cookbook compiled by Chick Anderson, illustrated by Margaret Bunn, and printed by Birmingham Publishing Company, Birmingham, Alabama, in 1973.  First edition, first printing copy with a errata sheet glued to the inside cover.  Self-published cookbook with 331 pages and many subject tabbed divider pages.  Cookbook has a heavy cardboard cover and a plastic comb binding.  The cover has a bit of shelfwear.  The pages are completely clean and clear.  I don’t think this cookbook was ever used.

Anderson proudly tells the reader that she was the state president of the Alabama State Society, Colonial Dames XVII century.   She was obviously a more than competent cook and an accomplished hostess.  The first section of A Dame’s Cookbook is on party foods, with appetizers, dips, sandwiches, and brunches.  Then, there’s ten pages of punch recipes!
