A book which brought back feelings of nostalgia for the days when no-one counted calories and food was packed with flavour. This book shows us how to produce cakes and cookies with the help of vintage recipes from 1917. Also included are tips on the preparation of ingredients in cake baking and the process of making cakes. With the use of modern kitchen gadgets it's possible to get the same results as the housewife of 1917 with far less labour. An interesting addition to a cookbook collection.
