Don't you just love to get your hands on recipes from the 1950's? well I have quite a few because my mom has given me her old cookbook from the 1950's and in 1993 I cut out some recipes in a section of the magazine Redbook called Blasts from the Past.
Now no one really thought I was a baker because I am always talking about crafting. But I actually do bake and cook a lot.
I should type them all out they are all pretty good recipes, I mean the Blast from the past recipes.
Grasshopper pie, Crazy Parfait's, Chocolate Drizzle Cake, Boy-Bait Blondies, Orange Banana HokeyPokey Cake. Such cute names!
This one I have in this photo is my daughter's favorite, it has coconut and neither of my kids like coconut, but she eats this cake and likes it. I think she likes it because the coconut is toasted.
It's not made out of the usual cake ingredients at all.
You'll see keep reading.....
This is the one I made and photographed. I am not a good photographer of food at all.
These are the cookies you need for this recipe, they don't get soggy and they work out perfectly.
It's falling apart
So here is my moms first cookbook the culinary arts institute encyclopedia cookbook. It is copyright 1950
This is the only colored photo in the book I think.
Have a happy Thursday!
