The Cake Book


by Edith Rushing and Ruth Voss, Chilton Books, first edition, 1965. Out of print. Fabulous but not flashy, just like the two elderly Oklahoma housewife sisters who penned this gem. Except for their 50s-era photos on the back cover, there ain't a photo in the book! But there are more than 300 old and sometimes unusual home-tested recipes for such gems as Toothless Nell's Cake, Black Bear's Cake, Eggless, Milkless, Butterless Cake, Tomato Soup Spice Cake, Green Apple Cake, Iced Sour Cream Pound Cake and Graham Flour Fruit Cake, to name a few. Fillings and icings too, of course. They say they wrote the book because at the time, there wasn't a cake book around.

Hardback, with pictorial DJ. Condition: Pages and covers are clean; slight small stain on the top text block; DJ intact with some shelf wear at extremities: VG+/VG.
