Cincinnati Sponge Cake and Sour-milk cake
Hey all it's me.. LOL I was reading through some of our towns 1879 newspaper and found these two recipes.Which made me think of you all. I'll copy just as printed, there are no mixing, no baking instructions, just ingredients as listed.
Has anyone ever heard of these by the way.
Cincinnati Sponge Cake
Two cups of sugar, three of flour, five eggs, six tablespoons of boiling water, three tablespoons of baking powder.
Next is Sour-milk Cake
One cup of sour milk, one cup of sugar, one half cup of butter, two cups flour, one egg, one level teaspoonful of soda, one half cup of chopped raisins. Spice to suit the taste
Now get bakin!!!!
I'll post something to the discussion section soon telling you all the latest, which isn't that interesting LOL
