Farm Journal's Complete Home Baking Book by Elise W. Manning
Farm women across America pride themselves in baking perfect cakes, pies, and breads. Farm Journal has carefully collected, tested, and perfected more than 350 outstanding country recipes, many of them state fair prize winners. In this cookbook that also serves as a short course in baking fundamentals, each chapter includes an extra helpful "what went wrong" section to help the baker correct a soggy souffle or too-crunchy cookies for the next time. Tantalizing yeast breads, quick breads, cakes, cookies, and pies include Danish Kringle, Chocolate Velvet Cake, Date Meringue Bars, and Coconut Cream Pie.
