It has taken a while to go through all of them and see what treasures I have.
One that I perused this weekend was called Look Who's Cooking !
Produced in 1954 by the Junior Women's Club of Norfolk, VA (it only cost $1.50).
The book is made of chipboard and the title was painted on (you won't find that in Barnes and Noble).
The pages of the book were lovingly typed on both sides:
I selected Date and Nut bread to make (recipe provided by Dot Carswell), I veganized it:
1 C dates chopped fine
1/2 C sugar
1/4 C Earth Balance, melted in
3/4 C boiling water
1 flax egg (1 Tbsp ground flax and 3 Tbsp water...this is my substitution)
1 tsp baking soda
1 3/4 C flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C chopped nuts (I used almonds)
Mix dates, sugar, Earth Balance, and water then allow to cool.
Add remaining ingredients and bake for 40-50 minutes at 350 degrees.
You come out with a delicious, not too sweet, moist morning treat to be enjoyed with a cup of coffee or tea.
Or maybe you enjoy it while perusing your copy of this:
Oh sorry my bread got in the way :)
