Weekend Cooking - Victory in Europe July 1945


Amongst my Grandmother's belongs was this little cookbook in making cakes and icing. I don't know if she ever used the recipes or if she had numbers 1-65.

  1. I love the old cookbooks from the 1930s and 1940s. I hope you'll share a recipe or two.

  6. Neat. I like the measurement in 'dessertspoonsful.' That would be interesting to try to reinterpret today.

  7. Those would be interesting recipes to try. I was surprised to see the soya flour in the almond paste.
