John's post
My grandfather, Clayton B. Stoddard started in the bakery business in Lowell in the 1890's. My mother was a Stoddard, and I used to work in the bakery and lived upstairs above it. It is so nice to see that so many people have fond memories of the "Twins" but do you also remember the square pies and the fig and raspberry squares?

Hi Terri! I am John's great-niece. The recipe is no were to be found in the family. There have been ones posted, however they are not the correct one. There was one that was very close, and my mother made it, still nothing like the real thing she said. I was not born or ever able to try these. I hope to someday though! Such a neat feeling to see all the comments about the Bakery. The sweet tooth has been carried down the line for MANY generations! ;) Take Care!

These blackmoons were made by Stoddard's Bakery located on Mammoth Rd in Lowell. When the owners retired they retired the recipe and they were never to be found locally again. My father would purchase them for us right from the bakery in mid-morning when they were still warm. A few of us locals have a recipe very similar but hesitate to give it away. I will say, the frosting is made with Fluff, confectionary sugar and Crisco. The cake is made with cocoa. I'd be surprised to ever find anything close to these delicious treasures!
NO Fluff in that recipe I would know I hated fluff, and loved those twins...
By the way to the person who Grandmother owns the recipe. If she was to give it to you, I could help you break it down...
I took Five years of cooking classes...

Oh my goodness....I remember these black moons. TWINS are what they were called. I lived in
Lowell and bought them at a corner store called Jerrys. I wish they still sold them because my teen aged sons would love them. I do have a recipe but not even close to tasting like the Twins. If I could only get my hands on that recipe I would be delighted. Any suggestions form anyone? Thank you!!
I bought mine from Mickey's variety Store on Chelmsford St. They were the best indeed...

Dear Twins fan, I am Lisa, Clayton's step daughter. You are right. No fluff in the twins. It was made with ingredients frim scratch recipe. I could probably make them if I troed. I know the ingredients. Will Mercer and Mugsy made them every day!=) yolande wills wife worked in the bakery and so did Olive who would yell, shoot the dog when the neighbor dog would bark. She was so funny. I worked there as a teen and so did Karen Nadreau, Diane and Bernice. That's how I met those girls. I still am good friends with Nadreau. I hope you and your family can enjoy this bit of fun history about the bakery and who was part of it. L :)

For a minute I thought black moons were solely eaten by people who lived and grew up in Lowell Mass like myself lol. On line you will find the recipe and try making them yourself. My late husband use to ask his aunt to make them for him and she baked like no one alive. She was the fountain manager of Kresges on Merrimac Street. A glass of milk black moons and 60's music does it get any better.
