Miss Sandy from Quill Cottage is hosting an “I Remember Laura” blog~a~thon. This week she is asking for favorite recipe’s.
1 cup brown sugar blended with 1/2 cup lard or other shortening.
Mix all well.
To 3 cups of flour add one teaspoon each of the following spices: ginger, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, cloves; and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Sift all into cake mixture and mix well.
Add lastly 2 well-beaten eggs.
The mixture should be quite thin.
Bake in a moderate oven for thirty minutes.
Raisins and, or, candied fruit may be added and a chocolate frosting adds to the goodness.
My favorite house guest in the world will soon be arriving. Tracy is my oldest and dearest friend. We have known one another since 3rd grade. Tracy and her daughter Kourtnee will fly in this afternoon. For this occasion I have been perusing “The Taste Memories of Childhood” in”Lost Recipes” by Marion Cunningham. Anyone for “Shoofly Pie”?
Now all of this cooking requires an apron.
Head over to http://anapronaday.blogspot.com/ where the Apron Queen is graciously giving away vintage aprons.
Let me close this post with a smile. Recently I made a meal my 6 year old found quite delicious. After eating and eating he sat back with a groan and said, “I wish I was fatter so that I could eat more.”
Have a wonderful weekend!
