When I was in college, every time I walked into a room, someone would jump to a piano or grab a violin and start playing this song.
My name was the joke of the entire student body, but I still loved the beautiful film and the incredible rendition by Barbra Streisand and Louis Armstrong – the two greats! Little did I know that there was actually a dessert called Hello Dolly. Apparently, the eponymous Broadway show was immensely popular in the sixties, and an eleven-year old Alecia Leigh Coach from Dallas, Texas, borrowed her grandmother’s cake recipe, tweaked it a little, gave it a jazzy name, and sent it to the first American food columnist, Clementine Paddleford, who featured it in “the Week” magazine in 1965 (http://cabingoddess.com). Here is a delicious healthy twist on this musical treat that bears my name, developed by lovely Stella.
