Join me on my delicious journey revisiting American home cooking in the era before convenience foods became popular (1919 to 1955), as I bake and cook from old cookbooks and recipe cards of home cooks purchased at estate sales in Akron, Ohio, and other exotic locations.

It's My Birthday and I'll Bake if I Want To!
Nothing like a southern Dixie White Cake to bring some warmth on a cold February day. And what better way to spend my birthday morning than baking a new cake.
I only had a few minutes, so I whipped up this darling and extra-delicious (thanks to the coconut) six-inch cake. It's from the same recipe box where I had a lot of failures, so the success of this gem is a surprising gift.
Got to run, but I'll post more a bit later.

Have fun baking! That's a beautiful cake - my birthday was yesterday, and I would have been thrilled to have that on the table!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Erin. And happy birthday to you! That cake tasted pretty good, at least according to my co-workers who enjoyed it today.ReplyDelete
Happy birthday! Wow what a cake. I've been in a cake-baking frenzy as well, though not using vintage recipes. My birthday is Sunday. There is a theme here!ReplyDelete
Happy birthday to you, too Erin. Aquarians and cake go well together, don't you think?
What is the word under sugar? Is it butter?ReplyDelete
Yes, it's butter. In more recent posts, I've been typing out the recipes to avoid this kind of situation.Delete
