Nice list !  Thanks for sharing.   I hear the same question a couple times a year, whether a recipe can be patented.  Answer of course is, yes, provided that it meets the requirements of patentability, namely novelty and non-obviousness.
 
The question I ask of clients is:  How will you enforce your patent for y our wonderful new apple crumb cake ?  If aunt Wilma infringes, how will the patent owner ever know ?  For this reason, I personally believe the value of recipe-type patents is very limited.  What's the last patented food item anyone can think of that made its inventor wealthy ?

Does the "uncrustable" count?

I didn't mistype. That is indeed the patent number I intended to convey.
 
I can't parse your reference, though. That's a design patent application, correct?
