Chocolate Peppermint Cake: Vintage Ad and Recipe

It's National Chocolate Cake Day, and this Peppermint Chocolate Cake is divine!

This Vintage Baker's Ad is is all about Janet! Well, yes, it's all about me!!!

I love these Baker's Ads that tell a story. The reality, though, is that they're pretty sexist. This ad dates from 1938, but the recipe is still great. I would substitute a few ingredients, but you'll love it!

Happy Chocolate Cake Day Janet! I came this close to posting a Baker's ad. I went with Tunnel of Fudge Cake instead!

GREAT ad, thanks for sharing...

P.S. I adore Peppermint Patties but I just can't bring myself to try Chocolate Peppermint Cake, go figure:)

Louise, I like everything chocolate & peppermint. In December I practically did a recipe every day. Have a look at Pattie Tierney's Peppermint Pattie recipe..
