A lot of the recipes found on blogs featuring historic recipes are found in these free books found on the net. The books on Google Books are not downloadable and has to be read on Google’s pages, but the books on archive.org can be downloaded in pdf and other formats.
THE COOK’S ORACLE published in 1817
A delicious recipe found in “Chocolate and Cocoa Recipes & Home Made Candy Recipes” published by Baker’s Chocolate in 1909
I posted the cook book this recipe comes from in pdf format two years ago and you can download it HERE.
The little book is a real treat from the gilded era just after the turn of the last century , 64 pages of chocolate and candy delight, richly illustrated with beautiful colour lithographs like the one above. And all you need to do to make it yours in PDF format is to click the link above and download it from that page. Enjoy – Ted
