Vintage 1954 CANCO Brunch Ad

This retro recipe is from a 1954 advertisement from the American Can Company titled, Manhattan Brunch. According to the ad, "You don't have to get up at dawn to make (brunch). It's quick as a wink with the convenient foods that come in Canco cans made by the American Can Company. Just wait till you try that luscious peach-nut coffee cake made with strained canned fruit!"

From this same classic ad, also see a recipe for Corned Beef Hash a la Waldorf.

* You can replace the baby food with a fresh peach that's been pitted, peeled and pureed.

This vintage coffee cake recipe has an unusual ingredient: peach baby food. That might sound weird but, in reality, it's just mashed fruit. From a 1954 advertisement for the American Can Company.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.

That's pretty cool. You know apricot and peach baby food make pretty good pancake / waffle toppings too.
