Mock Whipped Cream

Grandma has two different recipes in her little red box that deal with what to do when you have a piece and no whipped cream to put on it. I wonder if she ever fooled me with these when I was younger.

Substitute for Whipped Cream

Mash thoroughly one large ripe banana. Beat 1 egg white stiff and add to banana. Continue to beat until very light.

Mock Whipped Cream

3 egg whites
pinch of salt
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. melted butter
10 drops of vanilla

Place egg whites in bowl and set in bowl with cracked ice and salt while eggs are being whipped, add pinch of salt to eggs at beginning of whipping stage. When eggs are light and stiff add sugar and continue to whip a few minutes longer, then add melted butter and vanilla. Keep the mixture standing in the ice water until ready to serve.
