I just really like this jacket, with all the fitting tucks and different sleeves.
And my latest old pattern acquisition:
This will be so handy to throw on during those hot hot summer days.
Now, on to Torte Thursday. Here is a really old offering from Grandma G which she has noted came from her friend, Esther K.
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 large teaspoon Baking Powder
Sift the above into a bowl.
Put in a cup:
Soft butter the size of an egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
Fill the rest of the cup with milk
That is all. Grandma knew how to make a cake batter and assumed the reader would know too. But in case you don’t, beat together the liquid ingredients and add all at once to the dry. Beat until smooth. Cakes usually took 200 to 300 strokes with the wooden spoon. Don’t overbeat because the cake will be tough. Bake in a smallish pan, I would try an 8″ cake pan, that has been buttered and lined with waxed or parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees until it tests done. Probably 20 to 35 minutes. Cool in the pan 10 minutes, then take out of pan to cool on a rack.
Here’s a recipe that she typed on accounting paper for a topping for your cake:
2 egg yolks slightly beaten
1/2 cup sugar
Juice and rind of one orange
Mix above ingredients and cook over slow heat until very thick. Chill thoroughly and fold into 1 cup whipped cream.
Now that sounds yummy.
