Tea this week was a vintage baking affair. Do you ever try recipes out of old cookbooks? I love to cook from vintage cookbooks. They usually have some very low key but amazing recipes because they are tried and true by the cooks that put the cook book together.
This cookbook was put together by a church. It is titled: Favorite Recipes from Flagler County Kitchens. It was a recipe book my Mom had that was from where she grew up. I saw it at her house last week and took it home as soon as I saw it. The recipe I picked to bake was the Banana Cream Cake. I love how the pages are splattered with cake batter from a previous cook, probably my Grandmother.
Here is how it turned out! I love recipes from the 50's because you have everything you need to bake them already on hand and they almost always surprise me and turn out this beautiful. I'll share the recipe tomorrow.
I haven't used this chintzware pattern for tea in awhile. I just love this pretty pattern. It is called Welbeck by Royal Winton. Do you like to bake vintage?
