French Chocolate / Fransk Sjokolade

A classic hot beverage recipe found in “Baker’s Favourite Chocolate Recipes” published by Baker’s Chocolate in 1936French Chocolate / Fransk Sjokolade

French Chocolate is a hot chocolate, de luxe. It is especially suitable for entertaining when the serving is done by the hostess, and makes an effective, gracious ceremony of afternoon refreshments

Accompaniments for this delicious beverage should be light and  dainty. Thin bread and butter sandwiches, unsweetened wafers, or sponge drops are excellent to serve.

Let this rich, satisfying French Chocolate do the honors at your next party – a bridge luncheon, afternoon, evening, or after-theatre party.

A dessert recipe found in “150 New Ways to Serve Ice Cream” published by Sealtest System Laboratories Inc in 1936Butter Pecan Gaufrettes / Krokan Gaufrettes

Pabst-ett Frozen Peach Custard / Pabst-ett Frossen Ferskenpudding

A dessert recipe found in “Recipes the Modern Pabst-ett Way”
published by the Pabst Corporation in 1931

Pabst-ett-Frozen-Peach-Custard_thumb

Pabst-ett was a cheese prodused by Pabst brewery during Prohibition. Many breweries turned to alternative pruducts back then.  After Prohibition ended in 1933, Pabst sold the cheese business off to Kraft who continued to produce Pabst-ett cheese until at least the late 1940’s. If you want to try your hand at this recipe, use any cheese to your taste you think might go well with the rest of the recipe ingredients.

Old-Fashioned Codfish Dinner / Gammeldags Torskemiddag

If this dish was old-fashioned back in 1932 it sure is today. An unfamiliar way to serve cod for a Scandinavian, but it does sound delicious. Apart from the beets and onion it sound a little like what we call “Plukkfisk” in Norway – Ted

Oatmeal Bread / Havrebrød

A bread recipe found in “Borden’s Eagel Brand

Oatmeal Bread / Havrebrød

The people at Borden’s Condensed Milk Co obviously think we are all superbly accomplished bakers as they didn’t bother to mention neither oven temperature nor baking time in the recipe. I can’t say I feel all that sure about my accomplisment in the field of baking so I hope I’ll find help in similar recipes elsewhere on the net.
