Publishers Text

Here are recipes for devil's food cake, angel's food cake, marble cake, pound cake, frosting-covered layer cake, and many more--a total of 45 delicious cake recipes. This book's duotone photos provide a nostalgic look at mid-twentieth-century America, and the recipes are for cakes that are simply old-fashioned delicious.

The photos focus appropriately enough around the kitchen range and dining room table--and if Mom and Dad seem a bit too formally dressed for dinner at home, we should recall that it was the way middle American households were depicted in ads and magazine features, circa 1950.

The recipes for cakes, cupcakes, brownies and more are easy for today's home cooks to follow, and are guaranteed to produce mouth-watering results. Many are complemented with food-related anecdotes. Here's a trip down memory lane, as well as inspiration for tasty desserts you can serve today.
