I love old cookbooks. Last weekend at the Alameda Flea Market, I found a tiny cookbook, Carnation's Easy-Does-It Cookbook, by Mary Blake (1958). It's filled with helpful tips and recipes. Some are a bit dated, and the assumption is that the "little woman's in the kitchen," but it's a real blast from the past. Be sure and scroll down for an easy recipe for First-Prize Buttermilk Fudge Cake!
And here's the recipe for First-Prize Buttermilk Fudge Cake.
