Each week, enjoy a new, very old recipe from the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library’s Duane Family cookbook collection, an array of handwritten recipes that date back to 1840–1874.
2 1/2 tumblers of powdered sugar
3/4 of butter
1 tumbler of milk
4 of flour
1 teaspoon of soda dissolved in milk
1 lemon juice & peel added last
(Note: “tumblers” are similar to today’s “cups” and no, they don’t tell you how long to bake it.)
