Flapper Pudding

I got this recipe from my sister, Daphne, who lives in Orlando. I made it too. Even had to buy a sifter as I did not have one.

Here is what Daphne had to say:

Our neighbor, Mrs. MacNamara was first to get an electric refrigerator.  She made this wonderful dessert. I thought it was the most delicious thing I had ever tasted. Mother got tired of me talking about it. Years later I discovered it in a 1962 issue of Better Homes and Gardens, "The most popular recipes of the century." It was called Flapper Pudding, "so simple even a flapper could make it." I made it, just as delicious as I remembered. I also made it for a potluck at work. The next time we had a potluck all the secretaries came to me and said, "Please bring Flapper pudding again."
   
Here it is:

1 c. graham cracker crumbs (or vanilla wafer crumbs)
3/4 c. soft butter
2 c. sifted confectioners sugar
2 egg yolks ( room temp)
1 9 oz. can crushed pineapple, well drained.
2 stiff beaten egg whites   (room temp)
1/2 cup chopped California walnuts

Spread 1/2 crumbs on 10x6x1/1/2" baking dish. Cream butter. Add sugar, beating till light and fluffy. Add yolks one at a time. beating well. Beat another minute. Fold in egg whites. Beat at medium speed a few seconds until smooth. Fold in pineapple and nuts. Spread carefully over crumbs. Top with remaining crumbs. Chill till firm, 5 hours or over night.

My mother used to make flapper pudding constantly in the '60's. She lost the recipe and we were thrilled. Mom has been looking for this recipe for years!! I am sending it to her. Thanks so much!!

Back in the 50's & 60's my sisters & I begged my Aunt Lois to make this dessert we dubbed "crumby stuff".
To our delight, she always obliged. We couldn't find the recipe when she died. Thank you! I'm making it today.

I first had Flapper pudding back in the early 60's when I was a college student at Radford College, Radford, VA. I LOVED it! It took me many years to find the recipe, I didn't know it's name. I don't make it often because I'd eat the whole dish!
