4 cake recipes found in “Moderne Baking” (Modern Baking) published by Freia as in 1938 to promote their baking powder
Baking is strange, our breakfast, lunch and dinner habits and menus change a lot from decade to decade, but our favourite cakes recipes hardly ever change. “Moderne Baking” was published 80 years ago and still you could find these four recipes in one version or other in just about any contemporary baking cook book.
Its nice to know there are still some constants in our lives in these times of rapid changes – Ted
A recipe from a promotion leaflet published by gilde.no
I guess the name of the post and the picnic marking on the picture might seem a little confusing but it should at least cover both kinds of outdoor eating. I know that we Norwegians are more keen on hiking than most, so if you prefer to bring these muffins for a picnic rather than on a hike that is no skin off my nose – Ted 😉
A recipe from a Kellogg’s All-Bran ad published in 1928
From the ad text: Kellogg’s All-Bran makes wonderful bran muffins. Rich with old fashioned flavour. light and fluffy through and through. And you can be sure, too, they’re extra healthful – because of the natural “bulk” All-Brand supplies.
Plenty of bulk in the diet is essential to healthful regularity, doctors say. All-Bran furnishes bulk in generous quantity because it is 100% bran. For more effective than other brand products. Its rich nutty flavour adds real delightfulness to every recipe.
If All-Bran muffins was rich with old flashioned flavour back in 1928 it will surely be even richer with it in our day and age – Ted 😉
