French Bread / Franskbrød

A classic French bread recipe found in “The Fleischmann Treasury of Yeast Baking” published in 1962
French Bread / Franskbrød

The French call their long, slender loaves of crusty bread “pain ordiaire,” or “everyday bread.” They serve it at almost every meal, from breakfast where it accompanies the morning coffee or hot chocolate, through dinner, where it is used to “mop up” every bit of sauce or gravy.

Because of its rather bland flavour, it may accompany any main dish. Its crispness makes it a special attraction with soups, salads and soft entrees such as spaghetti or eggs. It may even appear with the dessert course when dessert is cheese and fruit.

Lemon and Earl Grey Chiffon Cake / Sitron- og Earl Gray-Kake

A light, delicious cake recipe found in
“90 Years of KitchenAid – The CookBook”
Lemon and Earl Grey chiffon cake_post

This American cake is extremely light, thanks to the use of oil instead of butter and the addition of extra egg whites. With such a virtuous cake, it is surely not a sin to add a rich mascarpone cream… The best accompaniment to this cake is, of course, a cup of Earl Grey tea.

This is a standard dish appearing in many variations over the centuries. It makes a lovely side dish, especially with strongly flavoured meats. It was a symbolic dish in winter, a sign that spring would come. It later came to be served as a festival dish on Twelfth Night (5th of January).

This is the original recipe:

‘To make frumente. Tak clene whete & braye yt wel in a morter tyl the holes gon of; seethe it til it breste in water. Nym it up & lat it cole. Tak good broth & swete mylk of kyn or of almand & tempere it therwith. Nym yelkes of eyren rawe & saffroun & cast therto; salt it: lat it naught boyle after the etren ben cast therinne. Messe it forth.’

Apple Pie / Eplepai

This is the third of these lush cookbooks flour, chocolate and yeast producers published in the 1920s I’ve prepared for posting lately. They must have made money back then, because these books were not cheap to make and we should all be thankful to those people who have had the sense to save them for posterity so we can all enjoy them today – Ted

Daffodil Cake / Påskeliljekake

This is the second of these old Igleheart’s cookbooks from the 1920s I’m posting from and again I’m struck by how little baking recipes and traditions have changed over the years in comparison with other food. We seem to like cakes and cookies to be as they always have been and I find that rather pleasant in our modern world of constant change – Ted
