Bernie Moran from Baltimore was in search of the recipe for the butter cake that was sold at Brown's bakery in the late 1950s. The bakery, located on Belnord Avenue in East Baltimore, has been closed for many years, like many other small bakeries. Nonetheless, it seems many people still long for some of the special baked goods that were sold at these neighborhood spots. Ruanne Lori from Parkville sent in a recipe for a butter cake that she said appeared in this column more then 30 years ago. She also used to live in East Baltimore and remembers buying delicious butter cake from a bakery not far from Belnord Avenue.

Alice Smith of Catonsville requested a Butter Cake recipe. She wrote: "My mother-in-law always speaks wistfully of a butter cake from her childhood days in Philadelphia. She brought one back once from a bakery there. "It seemed yellow in color, very low, very rich and looked like a cheesecake with a smooth top. There was no icing, and I don't remember if it had a crust or not." Pat France of St. Augustine, Fla., responded with a recipe that she called "The one. I just made it last week, and it is delicious.

Lawrence Prather from St. Albans, W.Va., was seeking a recipe for a making a cornbread salad. Beatrice McElhinny from Dunbar, W. Va., sent in a recipe for a cornbread salad that she thought Prather might like to try. While a cornbread salad may sound a little odd, it is surprisingly good. This colorful, layered side dish would be terrific for a potluck or picnic and is a great way to use up left over cornbread. It would also make a nice addition to a tailgate or Super Bowl gathering.

For years I have been trying to find a recipe for Philadelphia butter cake (also known as German butter cake, or as just butter cake in the Northeast at any German bakery). It is not a layer cake, but I think a raised-dough type of crust with a gooey sweet buttery topping. I really hope you are familiar with what I'm talking about, because it is not the easiest item to describe. The yeast cake with a wonderful butter topping that you are talking about is indeed German, and its real name is butterkuchen ( "Philadelphia" is not part of the translation)

Hope you can help."Donna Amacher of Baltimore responded with a recipe. "This was a favorite of my family and originated from my mother-in-law in Pennsylvania. She would make it for our family each time we visited.

Kathy Stumer from Tuscarora, Pa., was looking for a recipe that her husband's grandmother used to make and called cheese dough. She described it as pillow-like dough squares filled with cottage cheese and topped with breadcrumbs and sour cream. Linda Ziegenbein from Prineville, Ore., saw Stumer's request, which sounded to her like a description of kase knoephla, or cheese dumplings or buttons - an old-style German dish of tender noodle dough stuffed with seasoned cheese. She shared a recipe from the Kulm, N.D., Dorcas Society's 25th anniversary cookbook, circa 1971, submitted by Matilda Brost.

Ann Montgomery of Millersville was looking for the recipe for a dessert her mother used to make in the 1950s for what she called cottage pudding. She described it as basically a single-layer yellow cake that was served warm with a slightly sweet vanilla sauce poured over it. Cheryl Robbins of Joppa thought she had the very recipe Montgomery was looking for. It comes from the first cookbook she acquired, "The Fanny Farmer Cookbook," which she received as a wedding gift in 1966.
