This cookbook had been given to my mom as a gift from my incredible Aunt Peggy who is now in her mid-80's and still lives in downtown Houston. As the wife of a prominent business man, my Aunt Peggy always had something interesting to give others, especially from her work as a volunteer in many organizations. That woman has spent her life helping others, including my mother as she was dying. So, any gift from my Aunt Peggy is especially treasured. She's a beautiful woman. I hope this explains the special feelings I have with sharing this cookbook with you.
This cookbook had been part of a fundraiser. It is old. Many of the ingredients are proof of this cookbook's age. Ingredients such as, oleo or a "Box" of powdered sugar, which had been the standard, for years. Then, there is "sour milk" which I don't think I've ever cooked with and wouldn't know how to go about creating it...the thought brings on a slight gag-reflex.
But, I'm not the cook around here. So, I will share with you a few recipes from this cookbook that had been given to my mother and let you give me comments on what you think about the recipes. I hope you enjoy!
This recipe is for GOOEY BUTTER CAKE, which sounds sinful and indulgent. Also, the ingredients are those that I comprehend. It doesn't seem too difficult to make, so I like it even better. I'll try it over the next couple of weeks.
If you happen to make it, at any point in this blog, make your comments. A new comment always shows up for me, no matter how old the blog post.
I photographed the recipe in two portions. Don't pay attention to the Pumpkin Cookies recipe because it is not the featured recipe for this post. However, I might post that one as well.
...the rest of the recipe's instructions...
Gooey Butter Cake sure does sound scrumptious.
