Alice Teel from Perry Hall is looking for a recipe for a puff pancake that she had lost. She remembered that a cast-iron skillet was put in the oven with butter to melt and then the batter was poured into the hot skillet and baked. When it was done, the large pancake was puffed around the edges and somewhat sunken in the middle, perfect for filling with fresh fruit and whipped cream. Dianne Ross from Baltimore sent in a recipe for an oven pancake that sounds very similar to the one Teel requested.

It's easy to fall in love with the lemon bars at Joan's on Third in Los Angeles - all lined up in the glass bakery case, prettily dusted with sugar.

Paula King of Pikesville was looking for a recipe for a sherry cake she had made many years ago. Ivy Pierson of Rapid City, S.D., sent in her recipe for Sherry Bundt Cake that was given to her by a neighbor in the '70s. She says she has made it many times and that it is always a hit. This cake uses a yellow cake mix for a base, so it is a snap to make. The whole thing took no more than 10 minutes to put together, and the result was moist and delicious. It is certainly tasty enough to serve on its own, but it's also wonderful with a scoop of ice cream or fresh berries and whipped cream.
