One of my favorite recipes is for
HONEY CAKE. This is what I put
One half breakfast cupful of su
gar; breakfast cupful of rich sour,
cream; 2 cupfuls of flour; y2 tea
spoonful, of carbonate of soda, and
honey to taste. (I usually taste it
while making it)
Mix the sugar and cream together.
Rub in the flour with as much honey
as will flavor the mixture nicely. Be!
sure to stir it well so that all the in
gredients are mixed properly. Then,
add the carbonate of soda and beat
the cake well for another five, min-
utes. Put it into a buttered-tin and
bake it about one-fialf to three-quarters
of an hour. Honey cake should
be eaten warm.
