A recipe from “Rumford Bakebok” (Rumford Baking Book) published in 1927
At a jumble-sale this summer I picked up a stack of small cookbooks and among them was the one you can see in the illustration above, “Rumford Bakebok” from 1927. I suspect that it is translated from English as Rumford is not a Norwegian product but who cares.
The book had been appreciated as it was obvious that several generations of the woman in the Grindalen family had used it frequently before it ended up in my vast collection of old printed matter. (Two generations had scribbled their name inside and one on the outside.)
