Chocolate Peanut Cream Cake: Retro Ad & Recipe

You know I just love these Baker's Chocolate Ads & Recipes. This Chocolate Peanut Cream Cake from July 10, 1939 was specifically marketed as a Summer Cake.

Love the beginning. "Here's a Pal to Summer Desserts! Was it you we heard wishing for a summer cake recipe? We know you'll like this one." The ad goes on to say "It's simply grand to take on picnics--because it keeps so nice and moist." So maybe I'll mix up this cake today.

Wish I could order the "Free Party Book of chocolate foods for every occasion" offered at the end of the  advertisement.

Dear Janet, I love old recipes!!
They seem to always taste better. I would love to be able to order the recipe book too.
This does sound good, but it is too hot to turn the oven on yet. I would love to give it a try when the weather cools. Blessings dear. Catherine xo
