    Oooohhhh...I remember those spice cake bars...yummy! AND I grew up drinking Isaly's milk and I loved the treat of getting a skyscraper ice cream cone! When I was 9 I would walk to a store to spend my allowance on one. I grew up in the suburbs of Youngstown, OH.

    Any of you have a recipe for a corn casserole .It was made with kernel corn eggs bread milk butter and no cream style corn.I googled but nothing came close.
    I'm an obsessive compulsive quilter and batik aholic. I make only king size quilts.

    I remember the Isaly's in Oakland..I think the Blvd of the Allies or Craft Ave. not too far from the PGH Playhouse. I was young and my grandfather took me there for the sherbert skyscraper. Such memories...and sad day when they closed. I moved from PA in 1979...but still have memories of the local favorites that can't be found anywhere else...tried to explain 'Jumbo' to my husband...He didn't get it.
    And the spice cake...I forgot all about that!

    Yes, we had two Isaly's, one in White Oak and one downtown McKeesport. I'm sure your husband thought 'Jumbo' was elephant meat! How about a gumband? I agree those childhood memories sure make you wistful, don't know why Isaly's went out of business, they had the best ice cream, sherbert and chipped ham.

    OK here is my review...I tried the A&P Spanish Bar Recipe someone listed...and it was good, but not exactly as I remember it. It seemed too cakey...I remember it being more moist. But it looked like it and was certainly good. Here is a picture of mine.

    Also....I would suggest cutting the recipe in half since this made a 2 tier 9x13 cake....enough to feed a big group!

    I remember sitting in the A&P grocery cart holding this cake to make sure it didn't get squished - GREAT memory!
