Here’s a mysterious handwritten recipe from the Red Plastic Box collection. I think it’s for a spice cake. What do you think?
Honestly, I don’t know how long to bake this, or in which pan to bake. I’m not even sure if it the title is Spice Leake or Spike Bake!
But I love that it’s from Dora, and that it’s considered fine!
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 3 eggs
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 cup sour milk
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon cloves
- 1 teaspoon allspice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Cream butter and sugar and add beaten eggs.
Sift all dry ingredients together and add alternately with milk.
I save part of the egg whites for icing and use part lard for the shortening. Dora.
(This is fine. )
